Do you have a student looking for leadership development opportunities? Nominate them to attend this training!
The 4.5-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. On many campuses, the training addresses the disparity between the high percentage of women in college and university student bodies and the low percentage of women in student government. The full training agenda is provided 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.
