Julia Gillard Next Generation Internship EOI

EMILY’s List Australia (ELA) is seeking expressions of interest for the 2019 Julia Gillard Next Generation Intern

The Julia Gillard Next Generation Internship is an opportunity for young women to develop skills to become the next generation of progressive female MPs. An international political internship in the name of our first woman Prime Minister will provide emerging women leaders the opportunity to learn from progressive political parties and institutions beyond Australia’s borders and establish international friendships important for their political careers. Further, it will increase our knowledge of the types of support emerging women leaders need to become MPs, win elections and lead effectively. Our hope is that a future woman Prime Minister will be among the alumni of the Julia Gillard Next Generation Internship.
