    My name is Elizabeth Allison and I am running for Equity Council in the NWT/Alberta North Region. I have been a member of Equity since 1993 and in that time I have worked as an Actor, Administrator and a Stage Manager under the CTA, and as a Producer and Director under the Collective Agreement. I am the daughter of a Costume Designer, the wife of an Actor/Fight Director and the mother of an Actress/Dancer, so I have long time knowledge of and passion for the Canadian theatre community and its governing bodies. 

    I am particularly motivated right now to make change happen with a fresh new Council and to continue the focus on improvement of the Got Your Back and Not In OUR Space! movements. However, my main focus is to improve the guidelines and monitoring of children and youth working in Canadian theatre. Too often in our business we put the "show" before the "child". Many good guidelines are in place but they are not properly enforced and children are taken advantage of and in many cases used as cheap labour to fill out the chorus of a large show. This needs to stop and vigilance is the only way to make this change. My mission, should I become a member of Council, will be to give these children and their parents a much needed voice. 

    The time has come for a Council with new priorities, strong women, and a clear vision. I promise to be that, if I am elected.

    Three years ago, I came to Council wishing to serve, and wanting in particular to help develop policies and initiatives that would increase diversity on our stages. Since then, it’s been my honour to sit on Council’s Diversity Committee and initiate plans that the next Council will be tasked with seeing through to realization. Last fall, the Safe and Respectful Workspace Taskforce, on which I’m currently Co-Chair, oversaw the release of the Not In OUR Space! campaign and Equity’s new Respectful Workspace Policy. While these important initiatives are now impacting the way we work, the Task Force is continuing to improve and strengthen the new Policy based on member feedback. 

    I want to continue this work. I’d also like to improve my outreach to our region. I believe I can do more to raise awareness of what Equity is doing for you, and how you can be more involved with Equity. Having served one term and watched how Council works, I want to find ways to simplify and streamline its processes to make it an even more effective force for education, change, and fairness in our professions. It would be my honour to continue serving as a voice for our region’s unique perspective.
