Ruth McGowan OAM is an authority on political campaigning and gender equality. She is the author of Get Elected , the Australian campaign guide to winning political office at local, state, or federal level.
Starting her career as an agricultural scientist, Ruth worked for two decades across the public sector managing various STEM projects before standing for her local council and serving as Mayor. Her experience in public office in Local Government inspired Ruth to change her career focus and six years ago she trained as a Councillor Coach and accredited trainer in Political Intelligence.
Through her own consultancy business, Ruth now combines her two passions: advancing gender equality and politics. Ruth delivers Get Elected workshops throughout Australia for women interested in getting into ‘big P, Politics’ on how to successfully plan a winning political campaign. Through her Political Intelligence training, she supports women leaders to master the skills of political savvy and understand the art and science of positive politics.
