Women for Public Office
I encourage everyone to read the op-ed by Women for Election’s CEO Licia Heath in the Sydney Morning Herald “How to detoxify the bearpit? Have fewer bears.” > HERE. She points out how federal and state reviews have repeatedly found that power imbalances, high-intensity, win-at-all-cost attitudes, and alcohol have all lead to a culture that encourages, tolerates and even enables misconduct.
The Women for Election online EQUIP program is a highly practical non-partisan program that helps women campaign for public office or support other women to do so. The next program is on Monday 22 and Monday 29 August, with scholarships to support access > HERE.
