After the success of Ask Her’s commitment to have 20 women run for Calgary City Council in 2017 and the engagement of countless more in politics at all levels, Ask Her is pleased to announce the addition of seven new board members.
The reinvigorated board is comprised of women from an amazing array of professional, personal and political backgrounds. The new board members are:
- Karen Sorensen
- Shifrah Gadamsetti
- Gillian Hynes
- Marcie Hawranik
- Sandy Gill
- Joy Bowen-Eyre
- Erin Waite
Existing board members Lindsay Amantea, Nagwan Al-Guneid and Sarah Elder-Chamanara will continue to serve.
The board will meet soon to get to work planning the future of Ask Her and continuing to encourage more women to run. When asked about what the work of Ask Her means to her, new board member Sandy Gill said, “The work of Ask Her, to break barriers for women by asking them to run and engage in politics, is also an effort to strengthen democracy through representation.”
