Western Women in Politics

About us:
The Western Women In Politics Club (WIP) exists to provide women and allies with the opportunity to meet like-minded individuals who are interested in politics. WIP will further work towards promoting intersectionality in the political domain and also promote the importance of the position of women in politics across campus. Through guest speakers, networking events, socials, and seminars, members will have the opportunity to discuss the topics of politics and government with other women and allies. WIP hopes to inspire women to become involved in politics within their communities, and be a facet for allies to support them in doing so. The main goal of the Western Women in Politics club remains to create a safe and accepting community of politically engaged women and allies while providing them with the necessary skills, tools and connections to succeed in related roles.
