Program being offered in Halifax to help women get involved in public, political leadership roles

A three-day program is coming up next month in Halifax to help women who want to get more involved in public and political leadership roles.

The Campaign School for Women: Leaders in Action is free and will be held at Mount Saint Vincent University from May 25th to 27th.

Government says the program prepares graduates to run for public office, organize campaigns, or pursue non-elected political roles.

It covers topics for running a modern campaign, such as managing social media, developing a brand, and navigating the campaign process. 

Kelly Regan, Minister for the Advisory Council on the Status of Women, says government wants to engage more women as elected leaders to advance gender equality.
