Service Award Presented and New Member Welcomed at Recent PEI Status of Women Meeting

Catherine Rankin of Summerside was presented with a service award by Mari Basiletti, Chairperson of the Council. She finishes her term at the end of July. The award honours her five years spent on the Advisory Council on the Status of Women.  Catherine has been a delight to work alongside – her humour, joie de vivre, and love for her Island community will be missed at the Council table. To read more about Catherine’s qualities and contributions, the text from her award is pasted below.

Catherine Rankin

Catherine Rankin of Summerside has served on the PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women since 2011 and as Vice-Chairperson since 2015.

Catherine is a person of great common sense and great humour, always eager to share a story and a laugh. Catherine has a talent for using stories to find and name better ways forward for women and girls. Catherine’s experience in business and leadership have added a great deal to Advisory Council discussions. She has always been at the ready to assist in the Council’s work, as a wonderful support to staff members and to the Chairpersons she worked alongside. Catherine’s obvious love for Prince Edward Island fuels her passion to make this province a better place for all its citizens.

Thank you, Catherine, for your well-grounded and exuberant leadership in helping the Advisory Council advance the status of women in PEI.


Council and staff were very pleased to welcome Debbie Langston as the newest member appointed to Council. She brings her workplace experience as a Family Support Worker with the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI, and is sure to contribute significantly to the work of the ACSW.

Chairs Circle 2016

DSC_5432
DSC_5455 DSC_5437
DSC_5453The PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women recently held its annual gathering of past Chairpersons, hosted by new Chairperson Mari Basiletti. Five women from four decades of Council leadership gathered for a facilitated dialogue on democratic renewal.

The Chairs talked about their vision for PEI’s democracy and analyzed the pros and cons of the five electoral systems/tools that will be put before Islanders in a November plebiscite. Each of these five systems has unique advantages and disadvantages and offers more or fewer opportunities to increase women’s leadership and enhance democracy in PEI.

The democratic values the Chairs talked about included increased numbers of women in decision-making and more diversity in legislatures, but also greater understanding of electoral systems; less privilege power, and self-interest in politics; more collaborative systems, with meaningful consultation, discussion, debate, and input; and alternate routes for citizens to solve problems, beyond going directly to MLAs or other elected officials.

Current Chairperson Mari Basiletti thanked the Chairs for their time, wisdom and energy. She said, “The report from our meeting will help guide us as we explore the issues for the future, with the ultimate goal of creating a more diverse representation and equity for women as leaders in our government.”
