There’s a new programme for Queensland women who want to get elected
QUT’s business school is launching a pathway to politics programme for women who want to win elected office, but do not have a factional machine in their garage. It takes its lead from the University of Melbourne’s school of government which started such a scheme in 2017 to teach women how the electoral process works. Three course graduates won seats in last year’s Victorian state election, Juliana Addison and Kat Theophanous for Labor and Bridget Vallence for the Liberals (CMM December 3).
The QUT programme’s first class will be 20 women who are graduates of any Queensland university.
