Event description
Join us and a community of like minded women to Find Your Why in politics.

About this Event

n this interactive workshop you will hear from an inspiring woman who currently holds an elected office about why she got involved. We will encourage you to articulate the difference that you would like to make in society and learn how being elected can help you do that. Understand how your drive in politics motivates yourself and others over the course of your political career and talk to other women about what motivates them to want to get into politics.

We welcome women from across the political spectrum (and none) as well as those from any and all backgrounds. We're here to help you get started and connect with other women who are on the same journey.

The Parliament Project is a non-partisan project to inspire, empower and encourage women to run for political office in the UK. Focusing on practical, hands-on training and support, we run workshops and webinars to demystify the process for women wanting to get involved in politics and online peer support circles to support women's political ambitions more deeply.

Equal Power is a ground-breaking campaign to transform women’s representation at every level of politics. It’s time for Equal Power: equal representation for women in all our diversity. This three-year campaign, run by a coalition of women’s and civil society organisations, is funded by Comic Relief. We will track the journeys of aspiring leaders to office and the barriers and discrimination they still face.
