As you will know Labour Women’s Network exists to secure the election of more Labour women to public office at every level and to support Labour women to play a full part in the Party.
Although we are a volunteer led organisation we try to hold events around the country and provide lots of training events. You can find out more about our training programmes here, and events here. We send out e-newsletters out every 4 to 6 weeks.
Your membership subscriptions help to subsidie all our training – venues can be very expensive so to keep the costs down for our members we heavy subsidie our training programs so that no woman is barred from training due to the costs.
Every year we hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) normally on the Saturday of Women’s Conference - you will find out the results of our Management Committee Elections (see below); receive reports from the Committee on our activities during the last year; and hear from speakers. Early in the summer months, all eligible members will receive an email with the details.
We also hold our Management Committee Elections over the summer months, again more details will be emailed out in the summer but essentially every year, full LWN members elect a Committee who are responsible for all the work we do during the year. Each committee member holds office for 2 years and the committee is elected in two halves, so in 2017 we held elections for Chair, Secretary and four committee places and in 2018 we will hold elections for Treasurer and a further four committee places.
While we hold ad hoc events (normally with no or little charge) around the country we also have our big annual fundraising dinner – normally in London in the Spring. This is a very popular event, last year we had well over 200 guests and are in the process of sorting out the 2018 dinner now, it’s designed to top up the coffers for our training programs. We also aim to have our annual Christmas party in December.

Labour Women's Network Aims are to:
encourage, assist and support Labour Women who wish to stand for party and public office;
provide training, practical support, advice and information to its members;
work for women’s power, agency, voice and representation in the Labour Party and in public office.
LWN is an enabling rather than a policy making organisation, we will not take positions on specific matters of Labour Party policy other than to initiate and support measures that further our aims.
The organisation shall remain neutral in all internal Labour Party elections, except where the Management Committee takes a positive decision to participate in those in which LWN is entitled to nominate or vote by virtue of its status as an affiliated organisation of the Labour Party. LWN shall always remain neutral in all forms of candidate selection processes.
