About GoWomenLG

The GoWomenLG 2016 project is run by The Victorian Local Governance Association (VLGA) and is aimed at encouraging more women to run for Victorian local government elections.  Other aims of this project are to reflect the diversity of women in running, to prepare women to run good electoral campaigns, and to develop their knowledge of councils and good governance in preparation for the election.

The VLGA links local government, councillors and the community to build and stengthen local governance and democracy, and as a part of their mission are advocates for progressive social change. Learn more at
