Event Details

This event will be hosted by Professor Sarah Childs, author of the Good Parliament Report.

She will put YOUR questions to the panel to find out how we can all support women in getting selected and elected. This is an opportunity to ask questions about what the parties are looking for in their candidates, how the selection processes work and how they encourage and support women to progress in politics.

Hear DIRECTLY from the panel what helped them get elected.
