Have you considered getting involved in politics including standing as an MP but have not quite been able to take the plunge? Do you need more information but don't know where to get it? Or do you worry you don't have the skills but you still want to make a difference?

Come along to this workshop for women, to explore what it takes to become an MP, with Liberal Democrats Deputy Leader Jo Swinson, MP for East Dunbartonshire.

This workshop will look at how to begin your life in politics and Jo will share her story of how she got elected. Share what difference you would like to make, explore what barriers stop women from getting into politics and make an action plan for your own political journey.
