"Women provide a unique voice, without whom we cannot continue to evolve as a forward-thinking and global city." - Don Iveson

The Women's Advocacy Voice of Edmonton Committee, is a group of 15 community leaders from diverse backgrounds, who are approved by City Council, and brought together to help advance the work of Women's Initiative Edmonton. As an advisory committee, their role is to ensure that the gender lens is represented and considered in municipal policy decisions, and to build capacity for greater participation of Edmonton women in civic life.
