WILD 2021.

WILD (Women in Local Democracy) is establishing a new Network, Empowering Women 50/50 to reach the State Government target of gender parity at the next Council elections.

The Network will be chaired by City of Great Geelong Councillor, Dr Belinda Moloney, and launched by Dr Niki Vincent, Victoria’s Public Sector Gender Equality Commissioner, at an early evening event at the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre on Thursday, 30 Septemberplease save the date.

WILD invites you to join this exciting initiative.

We are aiming for 100+ Network members of both progressive women candidates and supporters by the launch date, and building to 1,000 in the lead up to the October 2024 elections.  In this way we will demonstrate strong community-wide support for gender equality in Council representation.

WILD hopes you will join the Network, and also encourages you to promote membership of the Network with friends/colleagues/neighbours who support the achievement of gender parity on Councils by 2025.  Please feel free to forward to others who might be interested.

If you would like to be part of this exciting initiative to achieve gender parity on Councils please email your name, phone number and email address to wildgeelong@gmail.com
