Women’s voices must be included in the policy making conversations that affect their lives. Without including women’s voices from all walks of life at each stage of the policymaking process, policy decisions can overlook women’s interests and exacerbate gender inequality.
This workshop explores ways to get women’s voices into the policy making process in Greater Manchester including listening events, digital technologies, women’s commissions, citizens’ assemblies, gender budgeting, equality impact assessments, focus groups, coproduction and other creative research methods bringing together researchers, practitioners, and local policymakers to share information and ideas on how to get women’s voices – across various intersections – into policy making.
