Our purpose, our cause and our impact
A late-night Whatsapp conversation sparked the idea of creating a powerful
movement rooted in our own community.
In 2017, our organization was born. We are on a mission to bring cultural change
by empowering women to seek leadership positions in public service. Armed with
undeniable research, powerful experiences, and a bold optimism, we’re sparking
a movement to end the inequality.
We are confident in our ability to effect change, even as a small grassroots group.
Our ambition grows from witnessing the overwhelming disparity in public service
and the immense barriers faced by women in our field. With our community as
our catalyst, we maintain an overwhelming passion in our drive to see parity.
Acting as a doorway for women into politics, we are ParityYEG.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.

being opening and the dream to run for office is realized.
Our organization is based on

disdain. We appreciate all
opinions, ideas, and convictions.
Change doesn’t happen in a
void; we need a village to make
progress. Our community lifts us
up and enables us to empower others
We are principled in our
movement. We accept our
responsibility as role models for
the next generation, and always
act with honesty, sincerity, and
Everyone is welcome, regardless of
gender, political stripes, religion, or
otherwise. We value collaboration,
equality, and opinions — there is
no right or wrong; progress can’t
be made without meaningful
