Women's Conference - from the view of a first time delegate

Mar 24

Last year I wrote a short piece on my experiences of Local Government Conference in Liverpool. I had attended as an observer and although I had enjoyed it immensely I got very frustrated that as an observer I was unable to take part in any of the debates. This year I was able to attend Women’s Conference in Brighton; as a first time delegate I was a little nervous of how any of my views would be received but was pleasantly surprised when the time came.
