Get Involved in Public Life

Do you want to know more about how you can make a difference by shaping decisions affecting your community and getting more involved in public life?

The Women’s National Commission, funded by the Government Equalities Office, is delighted to invite you to a free morning event in your region as part of our national Women in Public Life events programme. We are holding two events in March in Manchester on the 23rd and in Liverpool on the 24th.

Starting with a networking breakfast, the small, informal events will include short presentations by inspirational women who are involved in shaping our communities and society at large, practical tools to help you take those first steps in applying for appointments and an opportunity to learn more about what being involved in public life actually means.

Taking part in public life could mean anything from being appointed to the Board of a public body, being a local councillor or school governor, or being involved in your local tenants association or NHS Trust. There are plenty of opportunities for women to use their professional skills and life experiences, and these WNC events aim to encourage women to have the confidence to give it a go. Come and join us and find out more!

WHEN:
Tuesday 23rd March – Manchester. Jury’s Inn, 56 Great Bridgewater Street Manchester M1 5LE
Wednesday 24th March – Holiday Inn, Liverpool City Centre, Shanghai Room Lime Street Liverpool L1 1NQ
TIME:  9.00am – 1pm
To register and secure your place please RSVP to WIPLEvents@communities.gsi.gov.uk (mailto:WIPLEvents@communities.gsi.gov.uk) by 10th March 2010.
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
