The Scottish Women’s Convention feel it is vital that women’s voices are heard as part of the decision making process. The organisation provides an effective mechanism for women to engage with politicians and key decision makers. They do this by meeting with women across Scotland through conferences, roadshows and roundtables. And because of the lockdown – digitally.
The purpose of the current digital Roadshows is to understand the issues , concerns, and the ways women are receiving support. They also want to listen to the ways women see us moving forward, into a ‘new normal’ where women’s experiences are fully considered.
The Roadshow will last for around an hour on Zoom.
You can also use surveymonkey if you cannot access this or feel more comfortable to use written contributions.
