Run As You Are Political Leadership Training: Northern New Hampshire

May 20 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm EDT

$25.00

The New Hampshire Women’s Foundation’s Women Run! program is proud to bring nationally-recognized nonprofit VoteRunLead to the North Country for a day-long training at Gorham Town Hall. This nonpartisan training will help women jump start their leadership, communication, and campaign skills. It’s appropriate for women who want to run for office or seek a government appointment in 2018 or 2019, as well as women who want to help other women get started in public service. Join us to boost your “hard skills” and grow your network.

Women Run! is New Hampshire’s only statewide, nonpartisan leadership program for women who want to make a difference in their communities through service in state and local government. From the one-of-a-kind New Hampshire Legislature, to city councils and school boards charged with budgeting precious property tax dollars, to the many committees and commissions that help our towns flourish, there are leadership opportunities for every woman who is ready to raise her hand. The mission of Women Run! is to inspire more women to seek positions in state and local government, foster dialogue and community around gender parity in government, and provide political leadership education. Together, we’ll build a more representative government that embraces gender diversity and includes women’s voices.

With more than 26,000 women trained to run for office, VoteRunLead is the largest and most diverse campaign and leadership program in the country. VoteRunLead’s mission is to educate diverse women to unleash their independent political power, seek public office and transform American democracy. VoteRunLead works to equip women with the right know-how, trainings and how-to’s to help them enter politics with a purpose. We believe that by empowering women to run as they are, they will build a campaign based on their own passion, their own ideas and their own values.

This 8:30-3:30 event in Gorham includes:

– Facilitated networking

– VoteRunLead’s dynamic “Run As You Are” training modules

– Panel discussion featuring local New Hampshire women serving in state and local government

The New Hampshire Women’s Foundation is committed to make this training available to all women who want to participate. Do you need childcare? Do you need a scholarship for the $25 registration fee? Is there something else standing in your way? Please email Shannon MacLeod at shannon@nhwomensfoundation.org for personalized assistance.
