Book your place on Women for Election’s second Dublin INSPIRE training course on September 22, 2018.
“Women for Election’s INSPIRE programme is a one-day programme that aims to introduce women, who are interested in pursuing a career in politics, to the realities of political life in Ireland.
Throughout the day we focus on the three Cs:
Experienced experts will demystify politics and show you how ‘getting in’ is something you can accomplish. You will leave the event with the tools and direction to take your next step on your political journey.
We tackle the confidence barrier and how it affects women in political life. We connect participants with experienced female politicians to learn from their individual experiences in building confidence and resilience. We hear from female elected representatives, who will share they challenges they have faced and, most importantly, how they overcame them.
We explain how campaigns work, outline the different types and build awareness of different skills and tools required (e.g. winning at party selection level vs. winning at an election).
We tell participants how to access the media and what media is appropriate for their campaign. Our expert will provide an introduction to the basic media tools candidates will need for their campaign(press release, key messages for an interview, sound-bite etc), as well as sharing the basic rules for message development and interview preparation.
If this sounds like it might be of interest to you, please drop us an email to book your place or for further information email [email protected] We’d love to answer any questions you have.
Also, remember the INSPIRE programme is open to any women with an interest in politics or public life. It is specifically targeted at women who have an interest in becoming more politically involved – as a campaigner, candidate or campaign manager – and who may consider putting themselves forward for election in the future. We also serve women with leadership potential outside of politics – in business, trade unions, or the community and voluntary sector – that seek to influence politics or may consider politics as a future avenue in their career.
