A Running Start: Helping Break the Glass Ceiling

The Fourth Annual Women’s Empowerment Program

Sunday, February 11, 2:00 - 4:30 PM

All are welcome!
Women, Men, Young People, Teens - Everyone!

Women make up only a small fraction of elected officials in America. And the pool of young women considering careers in politics is still too small. The key to strengthening and increasing women’s representation in American government, and in leadership generally, is to get younger women engaged in politics and elected to office earlier in life.

Hear from Susannah Wellford, founder and president of Running Start, a nonpartisan nonprofit working to inspire and train the next generation of young women bringing their voices to the table and to the halls of power. Running Start provides young women the skills and confidence they need to become the leaders of tomorrow. Learn from its experience in training over 10,000 women how you can step up -- and help your daughter and granddaughter step up -- to the challenge.

Sponsored by the Women of TRS and the Carol Davidson Fund for Women’s Advancement, and in conjunction with Rodef 2100, the TRS group for young professionals

Cost: Free
