Preparing for a Better Future with Greater Diversity in Political Leadership is a new initiative championed by the NWDLC in partnership with PowHERhouse Impact Media Group. It is described as an innovative, inviting, and inclusive comprehensive engagement and preparatory program for women and non-binary people who may be interested to run in a political campaign in the next one to five years.
Preparing for a Better Future with Greater Diversity in Political Leadership kicks off this Spring 2021 with a FireCircle gathering in May featuring inspiring and informative panels and interactive small-group sessions with local champions in politics (both past and present) followed by a launch of a 90-day cohort experience led by former two-term mayor, Christina Benty, a strategic advisor to numerous municipal leaders across Canada, and Indigenous founder, impact media visionary, and former two-term municipal councillor, Charlene SanJenko. Further details will be released in April 2021.
