Exploring your political Pathway-4.png

Have you considered getting involved in politics - including standing for the London Assembly - 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 a member of the London Assembly, with guest speakers Florence Eshalomi (Assembly Member, Labour Group) and Caroline Russell (Assembly Member, City Hall Greens). This workshop will look at how to begin your life in politics and the speakers will share their stories of how they got elected. It is an opportunity to share what difference you would like to make, to explore what barriers stop women from getting into politics and to make an action plan for your own political journey.
