Women only make up 25% of the Councillors across Ireland. With only 1 woman out of 19 in Offaly County Council. 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 attendees with encouragement, support and tools to put themselves forward to election or get involved in politics.
Women all over Ireland are actively running vital community projects. We want to see this work reflected in the members of local county councils. That’s why we have been working with Offaly County Council to increase the number of women in their chamber.
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.
This Women Belong training event is running free in Offaly County Council chamber.
The Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage has funded a programme supporting women for Local Election in Offaly. The programme will be delivered by Women for Election on behalf of Offaly County Council.
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.
