Women’s Mentoring Network for Councillors

When just one in three councillors, and 17% of council leaders, are women, the Fawcett Society and the LGiU have spent the last year asking: does local government work for women? You can download a copy of the report here.

The report makes recommendations to councils, central government, parties, and the LGA that would change how local government works and get more women involved.

The Be A Councillor programme is therefore currently looking for female Councillors to join the Women’s Mentoring Network and inspire others to think about becoming councillors.

What would be needed from you

  • You would be informal/first point of call contact as one of the initial steps for potential candidates.
  • You would also be invited to a mentoring training session.

What we can offer

  • We can arrange through the Lib Dem Group Office and LGA peer mentoring
  • You would also be invited to a mentoring training session.

If you are interested in volunteering, you must be able to demonstrate a clear commitment to your own and others’ development.  Please email claire.halliwell@aldc.org.
