Leaders talk: Why representation in local councils matters
As the most local body of government, local (parish and town) councils are closest to their communities and can influence real change. You will hear from sector experts on how to reach all groups of people in your community and encourage them to be a part of the council ahead of the May 2021 elections.
Rachael Farrington, founder of Voting Counts, will talk about how local councils can help young adults understand the links between the issues they care about and the positions of power that can make a difference, the importance of feedback and how to create feedback loops in your community and how local councils can build resilience.
Beatrix Pitel, senior campaigns officer at the Fawcett Society, will talk more about the statistics on women's representation, inclusive policies and culture, and encouraging more women to become councillors.
