Women for Election is a not for profit organisation that trains and supports women to succeed in political life. We want to see more women succeed in politics.

Our vision is of an Ireland with balanced participation of women and men in political life.

Our mission is to inspire, equip and support women to succeed in politics.

We believe women, in all our diversity, can contribute to Irish political life. Every woman should have the chance to contribute to Irish political life.
