FREE online training for women: getting into politics, community organising and leadership


Women need to be at the decision making tables, both in government and within our communities. Semble is proud to support #EqualPower, a campaign to get more women in all their diversity into politics.

This summer, they’re running a programme of FREE online training for women on community organising and leadership, getting into politics and using your voice online. The programme includes spaces specifically for woman who are Black, Asian or part of a minority ethnicity.

You don’t need any existing knowledge or experience and women from across the political spectrum are welcomed. They particularly want to hear from BAME, younger women and disabled women as well as mums and those with caring responsibilities who are further underrepresented.

Sign up to be inspired and gain the skills and knowledge to get more politically active.

Equal Power is a three-year campaign run by a partnership of organisations, including the Centenary Action GroupCitizens UK50:50 ParliamentGlitchMuslim Women’s Network UKThe Fawcett Society and The Parliament Project.

You can help to promote Equal Power by sharing this blog on social media, using the hashtag #EqualPower and tagging the partners involved.
