It's time for us to all brush off our trainers and get out on the #labourdoorstep.
We want our members and supporters to know where they can campaign to help Labour women all around the UK.
So to help, you are now able to promote your campaign session or event on our website. Please fill in the simple form below and it will be advertised on our website.
Please remember to share your campaign selfie's on social media and include our Facebook link or Twitter feed.
[Please note that while we are more than happy to advertise appropriate events and campaigning, we cannot be held responsible for other people's events or campaign sessions.]
BACK by popular demand, after the first three sessions sold out,
we are pleased to announce a new date for this popular workshop...
Are you interested in becoming a Labour MP?
Perhaps you've been thinking about parliamentary selection for some time. Perhaps you've stood before, but want to understand the NEW process.
We are proud that, thanks to campaigning by LWN, Labour's selections will be shorter and cheaper from now on. However, we know that women still can't expect a wholly level playing field in Labour selections, and we're fighting hard to prevent women's representation slipping backwards.
The Labour Party has started to advertise applications are opening for parliamentary selections, and as we are proud to have hit 51% women in the Parliamentary Labour Party, All Women Shortlists cannot currently be included in these selections. Yet we know that culturally, women can still be at a disadvantage in the Party. Help us help you stand the very best chance of success.
Join LWN for a functional workshop to inform you of the new procedure and ensure you understand what happens when, which parts you can prepare in advance, and how best to spend your time and resources.
Join LWN Training Lead Nan Sloane and LWN Director Claire Reynolds via Zoom as they explain how Labour's selections will work, and aim to leave you better informed and prepared.
Nan Sloane is an author, speaker and trainer. Her books include Uncontrollable Women: Radicals, Reformers and Revolutionaries, and The Women In the Room: Labour’s Forgotten History.

She was previously Regional Director of Yorkshire & Humber Labour, and Director of the Centre for Women & Democracy. She has trained many now leading women within public life, including Angela Rayner, Jess Phillips, Tulip Siddiq, Thangam Debonnaire, Tracy Brabin, and many, many more.
