Equal Power Equal Voice
Women’s Equality Network Wales, Stonewall Cymru, Disability Wales and Ethnic Minorities & Youth Support Team Wales are pleased to announce the opening of Equal Power Equal Voice, a mentoring programme aiming to increase diversity of representation in public and political life in Wales, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and Welsh Government.
- Would you like to get more involved in public or political life and have an impact on the decisions that affect you, your communities and our society?
- Are you fed up with not being represented, with few people like you in the Senedd or your local council?
- Is there an issue that you feel passionate about or have ideas for change on?
Our vision is to see more Black, Asian and ethnic minority people, women, LGBTQ+ people and disabled people in decision making positions in Wales including public boards (such as Arts Council Wales or Sport Wales), health boards, elected positions in local government and UK or Welsh Parliament, charity trustees, school governors, and as community activists.
We are recruiting the first round of mentees for this ground-breaking cross-equalities mentoring programme!
