Women support their communities every day in so many ways. From running school P&Cs, building and expanding local businesses, overseeing local sports competitions and community campaigns, to co-ordinating drought and bushfire relief for neighbours and local businesses. These community leadership skills are highly transferable to public office, where your work can extend to helping more people within, and beyond, your community.
The Women for Election EQUIP Candidate Training Program is a highly practical non-partisan workshop that provides women with the key knowledge of how to campaign at all levels of government. You’ll learn about the tools and techniques to enable you to run for office, be the best candidate you can be, or assist another woman with her political campaign. If you are a woman running for office, managing a campaign or wanting to understand more about Australia’s political process, then this program is for you.
In addition, we will be running a half-day First Nations Workshop, which is facilitated by First Nations women and specifically designed to address additional barriers to running for public office encountered by this community.
We need more women like you at the table where decisions are being made!
These free, in-person workshops include catering. All you need to bring is your curiosity and a ‘get elected’ attitude. Once you’ve attended a Women for Election training event, you’ll have access to ongoing resources and support via our new digital education platform, “Campaign in Your Pocket”.
A quick note on our Terminology: WFE has an inclusive definition of ‘women’. We aim to engage with, and give voice to, the diverse experience of those who may identify as women – including trans, cis and non-binary.
In registering for this event you are accepting and promising to abide by the Women for Election Code of Conduct for events, including observing WFE’s values of collaboration and inclusion.
