Event description

Training events to INSPIRE + EQUIP women on their political journey

This is a dedicated 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.

Have you or someone you know ever thought about standing for political office? If so, this is a workshop for you!

Facilitated by First Nations women with lived experiences in political life, we explore the unique space of Black Politics. Share our political histories and hear insights from local Indigenous women who have successfully represented across the political spectrum.

Learn how to turn aspirations into action.

This free, in-person workshop includes 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.
