Women Leading Locally

Supporting women to become community leaders

Women Leading Locally is being launched through a series of inspiring and informative seminars that will be held online and face-to-face in seven communities across the state.

Participants will learn how and why they should get involved in local politics, why women’s leadership transfers so well into political office, and how communities benefit from having more women in council chambers. You’ll also hear how you can play a part in supporting others into power, and why you should consider applying for a 2022 Women Leading Locally Fellowship (or encouraging someone else to apply!).
