Given the current restrictions caused by COVID-19, this year’s edition of Women in House will be held virtually. Participants will be paired with MPs and Senators for a one-on-one conversation over Zoom. While we recognize that this new format does not replicate the two-day trip to Ottawa, we are certain that it will offer McGill women a valuable opportunity to speak with women in Parliament.
Women in House Coordinators for 2021-2022
Nathalie Clement – Participant Relations
From: Ottawa, ON
Hi everyone, I’m going into my final year as a Political Science and History major and I am super excited to have the chance to be a coordinator for the Women in House! I’m from Ottawa, ON and growing up there I developed a deep appreciation for the people who served our country in the Senate and the House of Commons. I participated in the Women in House program in 2021 during the pandemic and had the amazing opportunity for one-on-one time with a female MP from Alberta. The experience was enlightening and had a strong impact on my future path as a woman in political science. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to help other women experience this incredible program and contribute towards the diversification of Canadian Parliament!
Ashley Bock – Parliamentary Relations
From: Montreal, Quebec
Hello everyone! My name is Ashley Bock and I am currently in my third year of mechanical engineering at McGill. It is my great pleasure to coordinate Women in House this year along with my two wonderful co-coordinators. I realize my educational background is atypical for this position, but I hope to use my different perspective to enrich and expand the program. To tell you a little bit about myself, I have always been passionate about learning and discovering everything around me then using that knowledge to make the world a better place. I am very keen on problem solving which is exactly what has led me to both engineering and politics. The world in which we live is changing by the second and it’s our time to shape it into what we want to see. I look forward to meeting and getting to know all of this year’s remarkable participants!
