Here are the National Officers behind the Conservative Women’s Organisation

Pamela Hall, OBE

CWO National Chairman

Pamela Hall OBE is Chairman of the National Conservative Women’s Organisation. As a member of the Party for over 20 years, she has served in a number of Officer roles including Cheshire Area, North West Region and as a Senior Volunteer as the President of the National Convention, chairing the Party’s most successful Conference in 2019. As a Councillor for 12 years, Pamela originally won her seat and was appointed to Scrutiny Committee Chairman and Cabinet roles on Cheshire West and Chester Council. A senior HR Consultant, she’s used her professional skills to support more women into public life, leading mentoring schemes across the UK. Pamela says, “The CWO supports more women getting involved into public life, whether that’s the voluntary party, public office or public appointments. It's not about quotas for us but shining a light on the brilliant women in our party up and down the country, through a variety of development programmes (for women and men!), conferences and events which bring people together and are a campaigning force to support to candidates across the country." Pamela was awarded an OBE in the 2020 Queens Birthday Honours for Public and Political service.

Susan Coleman

CWO Deputy National Chairman

Passionate about politics, Susan is an active campaigner and enthusiastic mentor to women in her region and wider party. In 2021 she stood as Councillor in Shropshire where she lives and was the Deputy Membership Officer in her association, where she also chairs the CWO group which meets each month. She has also worked with the Conservative Policy Forum on a project to gather policy ideas to Tell Number 10 what women voters want to see in our manifesto. Susan spent her early career as a senior manager in retail for 20 years and then 10 years in local government where her business experience led her into a role as a specialist in business skills gaps - these increasingly were in the fields of Science Technology Engineering and Maths commonly referred to as STEM. There was a noticeable dearth of girls and women in these careers due in part to a lack of role models. Susan attended an event in Parliament designed to attract more women to stand for elected office and she realised that many of the reasons women didn’t come forward to stand were similar to those that held women back in STEM careers and proceeded to immerse herself in the process of encouraging women to stand. She believes that we get a better democracy when our government reflects the make up of the population which is 51% female, currently only a third of MPs are female.
