Meet Michelle, Our New Public Policy Specialist

Michelle James

Tell us about yourself

I have been a guest in Calgary and the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region for eight years.  I love hiking in the beautiful mountains, struggling through adult ballet classes, and exploring the amazing parks and playgrounds in the city with my two beautiful children.

What brought you to the Women’s Centre of Calgary?

I have been following the Women’s Centre’s public advocacy work for quite some time now and have always admired the community that the Centre has built. I look forward to building solid relationships within the Women’s Centre community and making space for community voices in public policy.

What is your personal definition of feminism?

My feminism is about challenging, disrupting and dismantling patriarchal and colonial systems of oppression.  I ground myself in equity principles and an intersectional approach.

What’s one thing you hope to learn at the Women’s Centre?

Well, there’s so much to learn!  As a first step, I am focusing on having meaningful conversations with as many women who visit, volunteer, and work at the Centre as possible.
