Our first event in Aberdeen! Come along to this workshop to demystify the process of getting into politics. We will explore the stages involved in getting elected; joining a party, becoming an activist, through to selection and election and explore how women can best prepare for this role. Our guest speaker will share why she wanted to get invovled in politics and what it took to get there. TICKETS
We are delighted to be part of the University of Lincoln 'Getting Selected' roundtable discussion. Participants include Lesley Abdela; Sarah Childs, Professor of Politics and Gender at Birkbeck, University of London; playwright Hannah Davies; local MP and former city councillor Karen Lee; Dolly Theis from the 50:50 Parliament; and Nicola Waterworth from The Parliament Project which empowers women to run for political office.
Organised with the support of The Women's Organisation, come to this event to be inspired by others and take your first steps. We will be joined by Wirral South MP Alison McGovern and Liverpool City Region Mayoral candidate Tabitha Morton, who will share how they got involved in politics and the workshop will be facilitated by Parliament Project leads for the North.
