Join the INSPIRE Training Campaign Today

9 May 2022

New Carmichael resident member Women for Election are hosting their flagship INSPIRE school training starting this week running for three weeks online for any woman interested in getting involved in politics.

Delivered through three online training sessions over three weeks, INSPIRE will focus on the 3 C’s- Confidence, Communication and Campaigns. The first session takes place on May 11 (6.30pm – 8.30pm), the second session on May 18 (6.30pm – 8.30pm), and the third taking place May 25 (6.30pm – 8.30pm).

Many local councillors, senators, MEP’s and TD’s have taken part in their training in recent years, and below you can listen to what Maria Walsh MEP had to say about her experience of training with Women for Election.



As a participant, these sessions will involve experts who will help demystify politics and clearly illustrate the nuts and bolts of ‘getting in’. Women for Election explain that ‘among the many barriers that stand in the way of women from entering politics are the 5 C’s (Cash, Childcare, Confidence, Culture & Candidate selection process)’.

Participants will work with experts who will ‘demystify politics’ and show you the essentials of how to get involved. Participants will work to develop your skills in campaigns, communication and confidence.

Each participant will receive an INSPIRE pack, which covers all course work, as well as a Women for Election tote bag. Participants will complete the training with the tools and direction to take your next step on your political journey, as well as the support of the Women for Election network.
