dc.description.abstract This project was conducted by the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute's Research Shop in partnership with the Guelph Chapter of the Canadian Federation of University Women. It was conducted to inform the Federation's programs to support women in Guelph -Wellington in seeking public leadership roles and running for political office. The report builds on a literature review produced through the Department of Political Science at the University of Guelph. It shares findings from 16 interviews and 3 focus groups looking at obstacles and motivations for the participation of women in politics, as well as possible solutions and supports. en_US
