  • POWER: Ready to Run - Campaign Training for Women

    December 6, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
    Fawcett Conference Center 2400 Olentangy River Rd, Columbus, OH 43210, United States

    Who represents you?

    In Ohio, women are 51% of the population and hold only 22% of elected offices in the state legislature.

    Are you ready to be a leader in your community? Have you considered running for public office or volunteering for a political campaign? Do you know someone that you think would make a great political candidate?

    We Need More Women in Public Office.
    Research shows that women make government more transparent, inclusive and accessible. Women bring different priorities and experiences to public life, including perspectives that have been largely absent in public policy making. Women change the way government works, and their voices are needed around the country.

    The John Glenn College of Public Affairs will host Ready to Run - Campaign Training for Women on December 6, 2018. This one-day conference provides training on building, financing, messaging and launching your campaign for elected office.

    If you are not ready to run, but want to be a leader in your community advocating for issues and candidates important to you, we invite you to join us for the Ready to Advocate conference track with sessions on voter engagement, sexual harrassment and volunteer/political board engagement.

    We challenge you to attend this conference and jump-start your political career.
