This workshop is for women who'd like to be more involved in politics but aren't sure where to start.

Maybe you are a campaigner but don't know how your skills translate into formal politics? Maybe you want to contribute to your local community but don't know if becoming a Councillor is for you? Maybe you want to influence policies at Holyrood or Westminster but don't know how to begin? Maybe you just want to know how people choose a party...?

Come along to connect with other women as we explore why women get into politics, what routes you can take and how to commit to your first steps. For women with little formal knowledge of politics but a desire to make a difference.
