A one-day, non-partisan program for women who want to run for office, work on a campaign, or learn more about politics in Pennsylvania. Participants will learn from prominent women elected officials, campaign consultants, and experts. Research shows that political women change the public policy agenda and the way government works. Women in government make our democracy more inclusive and more responsive to the concerns of all citizens, yet Pennsylvania has one of the lowest proportion of women in state and local elected offices and in our congressional delegation, in the country. This program will inspire women to think about running in a future election, and get women ready to run in time for 2014 elections.
