Who are Women for Election?

Women for Election is a not-for-profit organisation that encourages and supports women in Ireland to run for politics. We’re non-partisan, meaning we don’t take sides with specific parties or beliefs. We want to see women from all walks of life and political philosophies to think about running for politics.

Women for Election trains, mentors and supports women across Ireland to consider politics as a career. We run full-day training sessions called INSPIRE where political experts and female representatives take women through the skills they need to succeed. We also run focused masterclasses on topics such as campaigning and canvassing. Our next INSPIRE course takes place in Dublin on March 2nd. Orlaith Carmody, Margaret E. Ward and Justin Moran will be providing training across confidence, communications and campaigning. Learn more here.

– Since 2012 Women for Election has trained more than 1000 women to run for election

– Of the 196 women elected in 2014’s local election, 50% were trained by Women for Election

Dreadful, sad news that Noel Whelan has died. A great friend and supporter of Women for Election, a champion for equality. We, along with so many others, have lost a true friend. Our thoughts are with Sinéad, Séamus and all his loved ones.
