Women Standing for Council
Are you a local woman thinking of standing for Council?
Do you know a woman who might make a great Councillor?
The City of Ballarat presents the Women Standing for Council Forum, 6:30 to 8:30pm, Monday 27 June at Ballarat Town Hall, 225 Sturt Street.
Attend the Forum to:
- Learn about pathways women can take to stand for Council
- Hear from female Councillors their experiences as a candidate and life as a Councillor.
- Find out about resources available to women candidates
- Ask questions
Local Councillors Vicki Coltman (City of Ballarat), Belinda Coates (City of Ballarat), Tanya Kehoe (Pyrenees Shire Council) and Jenny Blake (Golden Plains Shire Council) will present a panel discussion at the Forum. The Women Standing for Council Forum is supported by the Victorian Local Government Association (VLGA) and GOWomenLG, a campaign to support and encourage women candidates to stand for Council.
