Post-Election Update

Diversity in Politics: Where do we stand?

Tuesday, November 8, 5:00-7:00PM

Gardiner Museum, 111 Queen's Park

 

With the three recent elections - provincial, federal and municipal - still fresh in our minds, let's step back and take this opportunity to look at diversity in elected office.

  • To what extent do those who ran for office - and those who were elected - reflect the ethnic and racial diversity of the Toronto region?
  • Have parties run diverse candidates in winnable ridings?
  • What more can be done to change the face of political leadership in the country's most diverse city region?

Join us on November 8 when Myer Siemiatycki, Professor in the Department of Politics and Public Administration at Ryerson University, presents newly released findings on the state of diversity in elected office.

Hear from our panel of political insiders on what worked, what didn’t, and what parties can do to ensure that their representatives better reflect their constituents.

Panelists:

·         Pam Hundal, former candidate for MPP in Brampton-Springdale

·         John Matheson, Strategy Corp.

·         Indira Naidoo-Harris, former candidate for MPP in Halton

·         Robin Sears, Navigator Ltd.

Moderated by Steven D’Souza, CBC

DiverseCity is funded in part by the Government of Ontario.
