In 2005, Brooks was one of the founders and Co-Chairman of Women2Win. Women2Win is a broad cross section of men and women from the Conservative Party who came together in recognition that the Party needed to be more representative of the British people. The W2W mission is to ensure the Conservative Party fairly represents women at all levels of politics.
In 2005 there were just 17 Conservative women MPs, representing only 9% of the parliamentary party. In 2015, after ten years and two elections there were 68 Conservative women MPs, which is over 20%. Women2Win aims to continue increasing the number of Conservative women MPs by providing support, advice and training to women who wish to enter Parliament or get more involved in politics. We also assist high calibre women seeking public appointments or positions as Councillors, Association Chairs and Police and Crime Commissioners.
The Million Jobs Campaign was established to address the problem of youth unemployment, and our manifesto sets out five key policies that will help young people across Britain move into jobs:
