Pathways to Politics for Women at the University of Tasmania
Tasmania has a unique political landscape, from its Hare-Clark electoral system to the 29 local councils that serve its regionalised population. The challenges faced by our island state require a robust and truly representative democracy. It has never been more important for us to encourage women, from all kinds of backgrounds, to bring their perspectives to our municipal councils and state and federal parliaments.
Pathways to Politics for Women is increasing the number of women in Australian politics by equipping diverse women to boldly embrace their political ambitions, thrive as leaders and make a profound contribution to society.
Through comprehensive practical training, workshops, mentoring and career-long support, we provide unparalleled expertise for women who are serious about driving change through political leadership.
The program will be led by the College of Arts, Law and Education.
