About the event
Our parliament doesn't look like the country it represents - could YOU help make it more representative?
One Young World encourages leadership at every level and we are calling on One Young World Ambassadors to consider running for office. Having launched our Politician of The Year award last year, we know that young people taking up the challenge all over the world. This is why One Young World is teaming up with 50:50, the campaign for a gender equal parliament.
Parliament is meant to be representative but there are twice as many male MPs as there are female MPs. At the last election only 12 extra women MPs were elected. At this rate it will take 50 years to achieve gender equality in Parliament.
Join One Young World Managing Director, Ella Robertson, and 50:50 for an #AskHerToStand information evening to answer all your questions about standing for election.
Speakers will include women elected to public office from across the political spectrum - this is a non-partisan event.
