To help get more women into politics 50:50 NI and leading public affairs agency Stratagem have teamed up to create ‘Hear Her!’ a training programme designed exclusively for women who are interested in getting into elected politics.
This new programme will take place over three evenings with each session addressing an important aspect of the journey into elected politics. ‘Hear Her!’ kicks off with an introduction to Northern Irish politics. This first session will provide an overview of our political and governmental structures here in Northern Ireland. The second session is all about getting your message right. On this evening women will learn all about understanding your audience and how to effectively engage with them. Finally the ‘Hear Her!’ programme will conclude with a session on how to run a good campaign.
All women over the age of 18 are welcome to apply. 50:50 NI is an intersectional organisation and therefore welcome applications from trans women as well as non binary people who would feel safe and comfortable in this programme. To apply just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
