The Parliament Project
The Parliament Project is a non-partisan project to inspire, empower and encourage women to run for political office in the UK. We run workshops and webinars to demystify the process for women wanting to get involved in politics and online peer support circles to support women's political ambitions more deeply. Active across England and Scotland, over 1,300 women have attended our workshops in the last 2 years. We are creating a groundswell of women entering political parties to ultimately achieve 51% female representation in all levels of politics.
We will be at the Women of the World Festival Exeter once again, running our How to Get Elected Workshop on both Saturday 13thOctober at 3.15pm and Sunday 14thOctober at 12.15. Devon County Councillor Carol Whitton & Former Lord Mayor of Exeter, Exeter City Councillor Cynthia Thompson will be joining us as guest speakers to share their experience of how they got elected. Pass for WOW required.
