FCM is engaging Alberta municipalities through a webinar on the Towards Parity Initiative to encourage women’s involvement in municipal politics
RMA and AUMA are excited to announce to all members an opportunity to participate in FCM’s Toward Parity in Municipal Politics
(TPMP) webinar consultation on March 6, 2019 from 12:00-1:30 MST.
TPMP is an FCM initiative aimed at achieving gender parity in municipal politics (with an initial goal of at least 30 % of elected officials being women by 2026) across the country. At this stage of the process, FCM is consulting with municipalities to gather broader input on common barriers and strategies to address them and welcomes diverse perspectives from all genders to provide robust data.
The webinar consultation will look for responses to issues outlined below:
- Prioritization of critical barriers on women’s participation in municipal government
- Key actions or initiatives that can be undertaken to address significant barriers on:
- Individual level
- Municipal level
- Regional level
- National level
- Identification of tools, policies, training and other mechanisms to effectively support the proposed initiatives.
This information will help to develop FCM’s pan-Canadian strategy to address the many barriers faced by women in municipal politics.
