Opposition Critic for Women and LGBTQ Issues
Janis Iriwn has demonstrated a strong commitment to public service and social justice that makes her a great representative as MLA for Edmonton-Highlands-Norwood.
Before becoming an MLA, Janis built her career around a passion for education, working as a teacher, vice principal, university lecturer, and Executive Director of High School Curriculum at Alberta Education. She is also deeply embedded in the Edmonton community, volunteering for a number of organizations, including Arts on the Ave, Boyle McCauley News, Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers, Highlands Historical Society, and the Somali Canadian Women and Children Association, among others.
Janis strongly supports gender parity in politics, encouraging women to run for office and actively supporting their campaigns.
