Women for Election Australia (WFEA) and the Australian National University (ANU)are partnering to bring to you a uniquely non-partisan forum about politics. This is a must-attend event if you are a woman running for office, managing a campaign or wanting to understand more about politics.

The Forum is tailored not only to meet the very specific challenges that women face but also builds unique skills needed to run for a national, regional or local government election or manage a campaign. The highly practical program will ensure that women have key tools and techniques to execute their campaign and be the best candidate they can be.
