Women support their communities every day in so many ways. From running school P&C’s, 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: Power Edition 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.
We need more women like you at the table where decisions are being made!
We are delivering this online training session for any Queensland women who couldn’t attend one of our recent roadshow events, or who want to brush up on their candidate skills ahead of an election. This program consists of 2 intensive webinars, held over 2 nights. Each session will be 2.5 hours in duration. You will need: a computer, access to reliable wifi and social media, a healthy dose of 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, including our digital education platform, “Campaign in Your Pocket” and mentoring support.
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.
This EQUIP: POWER EDITION session is presented by Women for Election with support from the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet‘s Office for Women.
