Longford Women's Link and the Women's Manifesto Project extend their congratulations to Women for Election on the announcement that Women for Election has been named by the Social Entrepreneurs Ireland (SEI) Social Impact Programme as one of its three ‘impact’ awardees. The announcement was made by An Taoiseach, Mr Enda Kenny TD, at an awards ceremony in The Exchange, Dublin this evening (19/10/2011).
The Women's Manifesto Project and Women for Election are both working towards a more inclusive political landscape where both women and men play leading roles in decision-making and politics at all levels, but particularly local level, in our society. We look forward to collabrating with such an innovative project as Women for Election in the future and believe our work together will have a positive impact on women's lives and our society.
