About Elect Her
The 3-hour training covers skills such as how to mobilize a constituency, how to craft a message, and how to speak confidently and present oneself as a candidate. Outside experts and current and former student government officials speak to participants about their experiences and what they have learned from running for office. We are proud to welcome Erin Forrest of Emerge Wisconsin and Dr. Jennifer Considine as speakers this year. For more details on what the training involves, you can view last year's full training agenda here.
Through Elect Her we want to provide more college women with leadership training, specifically the valuable experience of running for and serving on student government, because there is a clear connection between service in student government and future political service.
Although the focus of the event is on women in leadership, all genders are welcome.
