I’m so excited to attend WILD’s forum! As someone who aspires to make a positive difference to her slice of the world, I have often found myself thinking about, in the future, perhaps running for Council or Politics. WILD, Women in Local Democracy, aim to support young women to address the gender balance in leadership and I know firsthand that being around like-minded women is such an amazing opportunity to grow as a leader yourself. So, for me, this forum is a must! PLEASE SHARE! Friday 21st June 5.30 – 7pm Geelong Regional Library. More details and how to book free seats here.
The forum aims to start the conversation and support Geelong women to take the lead, to increase opportunities for women to consider running for Council in 2020 and there are some AMAZING experts speaking on the night such as The Minister For Women, Youth and Prevention of Violence Against Women, the Hon. Gabrielle Williams; our own women Councillors, members of WILD and Presidents of the MAV and VLGA.
Details about ongoing support for women to learn about Local Government and the election process will also be announced on the night. What an incredible opportunity for us!
Everyone is welcome so please send me a DM if you’d like to come and perhaps don’t have someone to go with, or simply wish to meet other leadership minded women 🙂
