BPW Calgary’s September dinner is dedicated to celebrating women and politics, and will also be the annual general meeting where our strategic plan for the 2015/2016 will be presented. It will be hosted on September 9th beginning at 5:30 PM.
As the federal race shapes up to be the most exciting Canada has seen, voter commitment on Election Day remains up in the air. It takes deliberate strategies and actions to advance women’s participation in politics.
Melanee Thomas, Assistant Professor with the Department of Political Science at the University of Calgary, will be joining us the evening of September 9 to discuss women and politics. Melanee joined the University of Calgary in 2012. Prior to this, she was the Skelton-Clark Post-Doctoral Fellow in Canadian Affairs in the Department of Political Studies at Queen’s University. Her research focuses on the causes and consequences of gender-based political inequality in Canada and other post-industrial democracies, with a particular focus on political attitudes and behaviour, and policy feedback.
