Galway event to promote women and diversity in politics

A public event aimed at advocating for women and diversity in politics will take place next week (17th April).

Helen Ogbu, a community activist and Labour Party Candidate for Galway City East, is inviting people to a symposium titled “SHEroes”.

It aims to address the under-representation of women, lack of diversity, and absence of people from migrant backgrounds in decision-making roles.

The free event takes place at the Menlo Park Hotel next Wednesday, but pre-booking is required.

Helen Ogbu says Galway’s diversity needs to be represented in local politics.
