Women in Cumberland encouraged to join local ranks to help shape local government ahead of elections 
20 May 2024  
Sydney - Middle East Times Int’l: The Australian Local Government Women’s Association (ALGWA) NSW is delivering the ‘Getting Women Elected’ Forum on Saturday 1 June, ahead of Local Government elections in September. 
The forum, hosted by Cumberland Council, is taking place from 9:30am to 12:30pm and will cover a range of topics including campaign strategies, effective communication skills, navigating local government processes and balancing public service with personal commitments.  
It aims to encourage more women who are passionate about their community to connect, learn and nurture the skills necessary for successful participation in local government, and promote representation of women as local Councillors. 
Cumberland Mayor Lisa Lake said, “as a woman who has been a part of local government and now in a leadership role as Mayor, representing my community, being a part of diverse events, meeting so many wonderful people with so many different stories and life experiences, and advocating for change on a local level is a really rewarding and incredible experience.” 
“Council values and supports diversity in leadership. We encourage women from all backgrounds and skill levels to consider joining their local government to help us better represent our community members and understand their needs, thoughts and aspirations.” 
Participants will have the opportunity to engage with experienced mentors and connect with like-minded individuals who share a passion for civic engagement and community advocacy. 
As part of a series of events organised by ALGWA NSW across the state, this forum underscores strengthened networking, mentoring and innovative opportunities, and aims to provide the necessary support and resources for women to navigate the political arena with confidence and competence. 
ALGWA NSW is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive political landscape where women are equally represented and empowered to drive positive change within their communities.
