See Her Elected collaborated with Westmeath County Council to host a seminar in Mullingar recently entitled ‘More Inclusive Politics for Westmeath’.
The need for gender quotas at local level, family friendly working hours, hybrid meetings, hot desks and the vital need for more diversity and people from migrant backgrounds, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ and Traveller women to ensure balanced decision making in Local Government- these were some of the key messages from the seminar.
