Angela will give us highlights of women in politics she’s worked with over the years and Bronnie will be sharing her journey as a woman in political leadership, before Angela opens the floor for a Q&A session.

The original combined event with Let’s Talk: Women in Politics has been postponed to a new date in early 2022 due to our speakers being caught in the Lismore lockdown.

This event will ignite debate and discussion why Australian women are still largely under-represented in politics by bringing together local and national female politicians to share their stories, insights, experience, and perspectives.
