We Are Union Women is a feminist, unionist, anti-racist activist network campaigning for social change, justice and to build the union movement’s ability to win on issues intensified by the patriarchy.

As a part of our campaign we are opening applications to union women and non-binary folk to participate in the Anna Stewart Memorial Project. 

You will get first-hand experience working with various unions in the ACT to help us learn about how to actively work towards gender equality through unionism. 

UnionsACT is dedicated to empowering progressive future feminist leaders to acquire direct experience with and exposure to the union movement's work to build a better future for all, and change the rules for working women everywhere.

The internship takes place over 2 weeks from 2 -13 September 2019 and is full-time (30 hours per week).
