- Do you want to boost your confidence?
- Or work on your resilience?
- Or maybe, you want to work past the fear of running for election?
Women only make up 25% of the Councillors across Ireland and only 19% in Cork City. We need #MoreWomen, like you, to get involved, and be where you belong. At the decision-making table.
Women Belong is a training session designed to provide you with encouragement, support and tools to put yourself forward for election or to get involved in politics and perhaps support other women to run for election.
Women all over Cork are actively running vital community projects, businesses, social services and so on. We want to see this work reflected in the members of local county councils. That’s why we are working to increase the number of women in Cork City chamber. Women belong in equal numbers in Cork City Hall.
This session will cover the tools to push past the fear and doubts you may have when it comes to getting involved in politics. It will be a safe and encouraging space to ask questions, get advice and share concerns. Yemi, a well-respected trainer in this area will be giving you the tools you might need to take that next step on your journey to a political career.
In 2019 Yemi Adenuga was the first black woman to be elected as a local Councillor. She works with groups in areas such as resilience, pushing past fear and confidence.
