Event description
Spend an evening with The Parliament Project and some inspiring MPs to understand the work MPs do and what steps to take to stand as one.

About this Event

Join this online workshop to understand the role of an MP and to consider your future standing as one. Hear about how MPs fulfil their responsibilities, the difference between being an MP in Government and in opposition, the time commitment, skills and experiences required to take on the role.

Hear from Marsha De Cordova MP, a sitting female MP about her route into politics, and the relevant challenges and opportunities. Consider whether getting selected for the next General Election is the next move on your political pathway.

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.

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.
