Women for Election Australia provides leadership & mentoring programs for women aspiring to enter public life & those already holding elected office in Australia.

#WomenInTheHouse

Women for Election Australia aims to provide programmes designed specifically to empower women and to help them overcome challenges they may face when considering a career in politics.
