2023 Equality Breakfast Volunteers

Are you passionate about gender equality and social justice? Would you like to contribute to the success of a large-scale fundraising event?

West Coast LEAF is looking for volunteers to help with day-of organization of our annual fundraising event, the 2023 Equality Breakfast on Wednesday, March 8, 2023, at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.

West Coast LEAF works to advance equality in BC for women and people who are discriminated against because of their gender. We do this through legal education programs, advocating for law reform, and conducting equality rights litigation. The Equality Breakfast is West Coast LEAF’s largest annual event, and the biggest fundraiser for gender equality in the province. We need your assistance to make it happen!

The volunteer roles will include:

Silent Auction Attendant/Processor

Assist guests in bidding on silent auction items and using our virtual silent auction platform, and ensure guests receive their winnings at the end of the event

Fund Development

Facilitate the fundraising portion of the event by collecting cheques and pledge cards from guests


Showing guests where to find their tables and answering any questions about seating

Volunteering for this event is a fantastic opportunity to network with people in the gender-justice sector, as well as lawyers, judges, and politicians. Volunteers will also be able to hear the keynote speaker, acclaimed scholar of race, gender, and law, Dorothy E. Roberts, whose scholarship and advocacy have been vital inspiration to our work to transform the family policing system. In addition, we will provide a letter of reference upon request, one year of complimentary membership at West Coast LEAF, and acknowledgement in the Equality Breakfast program.

Time Commitment:

  • Attend ONE of the mandatory orientation sessions at our Vancouver office:
    • Thursday, February 16, 6pm -8pm OR
    • Tuesday, February 28, 6pm- 8pm
  • An early start! Volunteer shift on March 8 will be from 5:30am -10:30am

If you’re interested in volunteering, please apply by emailing us at: breakfast@westcoastleaf.org with your name, the orientation session that you would like to attend, and subject line “Equality Breakfast 2023 Volunteer”.

We do not require resumes from those interested in volunteering.

Take action for justice and equity!

We need your help to make positive, transformative change.
