Mentees wanted!

Women’s Equality Network (WEN) Wales is recruiting a cohort of 25 aspiring women to take part in a mentoring scheme to get more women, and more diverse 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.

The scheme will run from April 2019 to December 2019.
Closing date for applications is 24th February, 18:00.

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.

Mentor’s include women from across political parties and with a vast range of experience within public life including,
· Members of Parliament including Madeleine Moon & Tonia Antoniazzi, and Baroness Anita Gale from the House of Lords.
· Assembly Members such as Jayne Bryant, Eluned Morgan and Leanne Wood.
· Councillors and Council Leaders including Councillor Sara Jones and Powys Council Leader Rosemarie Harris.
· Civil servants such Torfaen Chief Executives Alison Ward, Sally Holland Children’s Commissioner for Wales, Sophie Howe Future Generations Commissioner for Wales and Welsh Government Permanent Secretary Shan Morgan.
· Senior Leaders from the third sector including Uzo Iwobi Race Council Cymru CEO, Maria Constanza Mesa Director of Women Connect First and Frances Beecher Chief Executive of Llamau.
· Business Owners and Board Members such as Catherine Brown.

The scheme includes time spent in the Welsh Assembly, learning about how the Assembly and political parties work and how to get selected as a candidate; visit to the Houses of Parliament, meeting with MP’s and members of the House of Lords; a tour of Parliament, and time to observe activities within the Commons Chamber; hearing about how to be a trustee 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. This scheme is open to all women – we want to hear from you and improve the representation and diversity of women in Welsh public life.
If you can demonstrate a clear interest in politics and public life and a commitment to your own and others’ development, then this could be the scheme for you.
