The Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee (CJPAC) has established the Vancouver Women in Politics Mentorship Program, an initiative aimed at Jewish women (18+) who are interested in politics. The Women in Politics Mentorship Program will partner Jewish mentees who are interested in becoming more involved in the political process, either personally or professionally, with Jewish mentors who have senior experience in politics, government and communications. Priority will be given to mentees who may not have access to these networks through other channels.
