This program is aimed at any woman interested in a career in politics or any woman activist committed to influencing policy outcomes.

It's also an opportunity for women to mentor each other in an open and generous manner.

The training program is delivered by a cross-section of seasoned and savvy political operators.

Past presenters include Mary Delahunty, Liberty Sanger, Anne Summers and Jill Hennessy.
