Informed Opinions is working to amplify women’s voices and build their leadership capacity. The project trains and supports women in making their ideas more accessible and increasing their impact.
Our goals are to bridge the gender gap in public commentary and enhance the quality of public discourse by expanding the diversity of perspectives that inform Canada’s policies and priorities.
We deliver engaging keynote presentations, dynamic and practical workshops, ongoing editing support, and strategic advice. In the process, we build women’s leadership capacity.
Informed Opinions is a project of the registered charity, Media Action.
