NCWQ is proud to promote QUT’s Pathways to Politics for Women program, designed to benefit women who aspire to elected office.
As the only program of its kind in Queensland, QUT’s Pathways to Politics for Women is a nonpartisan initiative that seeks to increase female participation in all levels of government by equipping women with the skills to succeed in being elected to public office, and to thrive as political leaders.
In Australia, women are under-represented across all levels of government, business, civil society and positions of influence. Despite their proven ability as leaders and their right to participate equally in democratic governance, women still face many obstacles to participating in political life.
The program aims to provide women the opportunity to gain the skills and networks to reach elected office at local, state and national levels. These skills include:
- understanding politics
- articulating your personal leadership vision
- developing resilience
- building your base
- speech writing
- media training
- understanding policy making
The program is open to female graduates from a Queensland university and aims to inspire and empower participants to lead our country into the future.
