Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce

Seat at the Table Workshop 1

A workshop to change the face of elected councils

About this event

On April 7, Niagara Region will kick off a new initiative designed to change the face of elected councils in the 2022 municipal election with launch of the Niagara Region Seat at the Table program. This is the first in a four-part virtual workshop series and mentorship program that will inspire and prepare women from underrepresented backgrounds to run in the upcoming regional and municipal elections.


The session will include a motivating keynote speaker and panel discussion with experienced elected officials to share their insights and experiences to encourage women to get involved and get elected. (Stay tuned for announcements on the speakers!)


Women, gender diverse individuals and people from underrepresented backgrounds are encouraged to attend. Whether you are considering running for municipal council in 2022 or want to support a female or gender diverse candidate, this session will provide useful information on your next steps. Future workshops will provide practical tools, resources and mentorship opportunities for women to get ready to run in the 2022 municipal elections.


This initiative is funded by Women and Gender Equality (WAGE) Canada in partnership with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Canadian Women in Local Leadership (CanWILL) Program.
