Have you always wanted to get involved in politics, but don't know where to start?
Come along to Portsmouth City Council on 4 June for our free, two-hour workshop and learn more about exploring your political pathway and how to kick-start your political career. You don't need political experience, a party, or an in-depth knowledge of the political system - all you need is the passion to make a difference and the curiosity to find out more. We welcome women from across the political spectrum (and none) and from any and all backgrounds: we're here to help you get started and connect you with other women in Portsmouth who are on the same journey.
We'll discuss everything from the process of standing to surmounting barriers that might be in your way. We're also grateful to be joined by Councillor Donna Jones, who will share her experiences of standing for election and in politics. The Deputy Lord Mayor of Portsmouth Cllr Ben Dowling will welcome participants in the Lord Mayor's suite at 6pm before welcoming them in to the chamber for the workshop to begin at 6.30pm. Leave feeling knowledgeable, confident, and inspired to #GetReadyToStand!
Our events are open to all women, cis and trans.
Information regarding access at Guildhall is available here. We work hard to ensure our events are accessible for everyone - if you would like to join this workshop and have any access needs that you’d like to discuss please don’t hesitate to get in touch with email@example.com.
