Local Women Leading Change Saturday 15 August 2020

LWLC Online x WHISE: South East Bumper Session

Free online workshop for women considering running for local government. Hosted in collaboration with Women’s Health in the South East (WHISE).

An exciting opportunity to engage women in our community, who might be considering running for local government in the elections in October.

On Saturday 15th August, Women’s Health In South East (WHISE) are proud to be co-hosting a free online training with VLGA, called Local Women Leading Change.  We need your help to promote this training to women in your community. WHISE and VLGA wish to engage women from all communities, especially those who for too long, have been under represented in local government.

As a partner to the Preventing Violence Together (PVT) strategy, can we ask that you forward this email or its content, to your communications team, for promotion on Council social media platforms, newsletters, newspapers etc?  Please also share with other Council teams and your community organisations where possible, particularly those groups or organisations who engage with women from migrant backgrounds, youth, Aboriginal community groups/ agencies, faith organisations etc.

Please use the attached PDF flyer and social media tile, as well as the registration and Facebook links below.

Please promote widely in your communications and if you have any questions about these sessions, please kindly email Liddy Clark – liddy@vlga.org.au




Having more women in our community, in positions of leadership and decision-making is of course, a crucial step towards achieving gender equality.  Thank you in advance for supporting this important work,
