Exciting news! Due to high demand, the Women in Local Government conference now also offers an online attendance option. Limited spots available on a first-come, first-served basis. *Click here to confirm your preference.
Despite making up 78% of the local government workforce, women account for only 17% of local authority leaders and 33% of council chief executives – statistics which have hardly changed for a decade. Meanwhile, following the 2019 council elections, just 35% of councillors are female, further representing lack of meaningful progress for women in Local Government. In the context of constitutional change and devolution, it is more important than ever that leadership teams in local government are fully representative of the populations they serve.
Following hugely successful events in London, Manchester and online over the past three years, Women in Local Government returns in 2024 to offer practical advice and coaching on how to address the barriers affecting your progression and further develop your career in times of change.
*We'll reach out closer to the event to confirm your preference.
