Gender Bias Training in Prince Edward Island (PEI)

#DavidDivine and I took our first business trip to Prince Edward Island (PEI) to meet a large group of individuals seeking political office (with over 70 per cent males) from across the Island. Our topic was Gender Bias and how to address some of the barriers faced by their female colleagues and constituents when seeking to run for political office.

We were encouraged by the number of individuals who took time out of their electioneering to meet with us and engaged with the subject because they want to see a change in their legislature.

The participants demonstrated commitment and to a willingness to learn and focused on achieving their goals. It was powerful to be a part of something so significant and the fact that this training was planned well before the election was called.

Thanks to all of you for giving us this opportunity to come into your space, learn about each other's cultural diversity, share our thoughts and ideas together. We enjoyed our time and loved PEI.

We wish you all success in your coming elections and a big win in your ridings. Hope to be back soon. (April 6 & 7 2019).
