EMILY's List provides training to women as an opportunity to empower, mentor and share important political knowledge, helping women get active in their communities. Training overcomes traditional concentration of political power by sharing it more widely, which in turn helps create a more egalitarian society. It's just another way EMILY's List Australia puts into practice the mantra, When Women Support Women, Women Win!
Our training gives progressive people and campaigns the inside, cutting edge information necessary to win policy debates and shape election outcomes. Whether you are campaigning in your local community, advocating for better public policy, working in corporate or community sectors or starting an election campaign you need the EMILY's List Australia Inside Edge
