WEN Wales are recruiting a cohort of 25 aspiring women to take part in a mentoring scheme to get more women into public and political life. If you are a woman looking to develop or further a career in politics or public life then this could be the scheme for you.
Taking part will enable you to develop your political skills and increase the impact and influence you can have on political and public life through mentoring from one of a number of highly influential women along with bespoke training and peer group support.
The scheme includes time spent in the Welsh Assembly, learning about how the Assembly and political parties work and how to get selected, hearing about how to be a trustee or a school governor and be more active in public life. A series of networking and other events will aim to train and further develop the core skills required to be effective in public or political life.
We’re now inviting applications from women across Wales. Applicants must be able to demonstrate a clear interest in politics and public life and a commitment to their own and others’ development.
The scheme will run from April 2018 to December 2018.
