*Next Event*

Fawcett Devon has teamed up with the Parliament Project and is holding a 2-hour workshop, followed by a panel discussion in Exeter on 2nd June, 1.30pm to 5.30pm. 

The workshop facilitated by the Parliament Project will be a practical workshop to train/encourage women to get involved in politics and campaigning across all parties. 

In the Parliament Projects ‘Becoming an MP/Councillor' workshop, we explore how you become an MP/Councillor, where and when to run, explore the different pathways that some current MPs/Councillors have taken, look at some of the issues holding women back in their political pathways and encourage the participants to identify their own next steps. 

We would love to invite you to the event. We would particularly like to encourage women to come forward to show interest in the district council elections in Devon next year and for positions on parish and town councils. We see these as important pathways to a career in Parliament as well as bring change to our Community and an important step to achieving 50:50.

We would also like to ask you to encourage women you know who could benefit from this to attend.  

Please let us know if you are able to accept this invitation as soon as possible by booking your ticket - hurry, as places are limited!
