10th July 2017
This is an invitation for your students to take apart in our annual My Vote My Voice event and to make a brief presentation in the Legislative Council Chamber, Parliament of Victoria on Friday 1 September 2017. This year’s theme is My Vote My Voice: Women in Local Democracy – towards gender equality.
This year marks 20 years since the development of the Local Government Women’s Charter, which contains the three principles of gender equity, diversity and active citizenship. Our 2017 event is designed to encourage students to investigate these principles as they relate to the level of participation of young women in decision making in the community and workplaces.
Students are invited to make three minute presentations on the 2017 theme, to the invited audience of students, community members and a panel of eminent women.
Although places are limited, we would welcome up to 6 students from your school, with no more than 3 to speak, and accompanying staff or parents to attend. We have arranged the half day program with on-arrival refreshments and photographs from 8.30 am, then students and guests will move to the Legislative Council Chamber for a program of speeches, student presentations and panel comments that will conclude at 12 noon. We hope some of your students will be able to attend on Friday 1 September.
Further details and photographs are available on the YoungNCWVic Facebook. Students from participating schools and their teachers are encouraged to send some information about their preparation for the event via NCWV’s wordpress blog https://youngncwvic.wordpress.com/
