Leadership and Representation: Connecting with communities and amplifying voices
June 25, 2020 I 3:30-5:00 p.m. EDT / 12:30-2:00 p.m. PDT I via Zoom
Engaging constituents is one of the most important roles that legislators hold. A vibrant democracy includes the voices of all of its members and effective leaders are able to understand and advocate for the diverse needs of their constituents, especially for those that are marginalized.
Join Matthew Green, Member of Parliament, and Andrea Reimer, former Vancouver City Councillor, as they share their insights and experience on how to bring diverse voices to the table, build coalitions, and advocate for local needs on a provincial, national and international level.
This session is moderated by Brittany Andrew-Amofah, Senior Policy and Research Analyst at the Broadbent Institute.
