ClosedProgram Closed: 26th of April 2022 Run By: Pathways to Politics Program for Women Further Information: https://trawalla.smartygrants.com.au/

The Pathways to Politics Program for Women is a national, proudly non-partisan initiative that aims to change the face of politics by equipping women with the skills, knowledge, confidence, and networks they need to run for elected office and thrive as political leaders.

This initiative of the Trawalla Foundation, Women’s Leadership Institute Australia and University of Melbourne seeks to address the underrepresentation of women in Australian politics, and is delivered in partnership with state-based university partners University of Melbourne (UoM), Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and University of New South Wales (UNSW).

Pathways brings together significant expertise and experience from across Australia’s political spectrum to provide participants with networking opportunities and practical training that emphasises good governance, ethics and leadership. The program supports a strong and inclusive cohort culture.

The program curriculum is delivered in a practical, experiential format, with modules covering topics such as political vision, campaign planning, media training, speech-writing and leadership skills.

Participants will be selected on a competitive basis. The selection criteria are as follows:

  • Commitment to seeking elected office
  • Leadership experience
  • Professional and life experience
  • Political engagement
  • Ability to tell your story in a compelling way
