BE A COUNCILLOR: with Elect Her
February 29 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Change “somebody should do something about that…” into “I’ve decided to be that somebody.”
We are inviting all women in England interested in local politics to join our Be a Councillor workshop. Hear from inspirational women in local politics to discover if becoming a councillor is right for you and how to get there, whilst building a supportive community.
For women to be able to participate, progress and stay in local politics, we need new forms of networks and support that work for us. By bringing women together across England with varying levels of experience, we hope to spark skill-sharing, strength, encouragement, and an opportunity for you to hear from current councillors about their experiences.
So whether you’re unsure if local politics is right for you or thinking of standing, join us as we share resources and advice to help you get started on your political journey. We’ll be hosting this gathering on Thursday, 29th February, from 7:30-9:00 pm.
All women are welcome to register for these sessions. Non-binary people whose experiences or identities intersect with women’s and therefore feel they would benefit from accessing a women-centred space are welcome to join us.
