It will soon be time to ‘Equip’ more women to run as Women for Election are delighted to announce that Ireland’s first ever political campaign school is to return this September. Equip is a three-day residential programme and it is designed to provide in-depth, practical training for female candidates and female campaign managers in advance of the general election in a cross-party environment. Whether currently elected or running for election for the first time, EQUIP is designed to provide the skills and grounding necessary to contest an election campaign. Over 50% of the women who won seats in last year’s local government elections completed Women for Election training courses and many of them participated in Equip. We are looking forward to working with many more incredible women and helping them to reach their full potential. You can keep up to date with information about Equip on Twitter and Facebook.
Suzanne is the Director of Operations and Campaigns for Women for Election.
