WFEA partnering with NSW Government to EQUIP more women to run for local government

ANNOUNCEMENT: Women for Election Australia is partnering with the NSW Government to EQUIP more women to run in Local Government elections.

If you’ve ever considered running for public office, this is a great place to start. 

Our highly practical EQUIP program provides women with the knowledge, tools, and techniques to run for office, and be the best candidate they can be. It’s also a great resource if you’re supporting other women with their political campaigns.

Currently, NSW has the least number of female councillors of any state in Australia. With Local Government elections scheduled for September 2021, now is the time to understand how you can take a seat at the table where decisions are being made.

Days:    4 x evening sessions 
Dates:   19 + 26 Oct and 2 + 9 Nov 
Time:    7 – 8.30 pm

Days:    2 x afternoon sessions 
Dates:  10 & 17 October
