WeWork & VoteRunLead present Women’s Leadership Works- #RunAsYouAre Illinois Training
WeWork and VoteRunLead are teaming up to to empower women by holding training seminars at WeWork locations to give women the tools they need to run for office and win. These #RunAsYouAre WeWork and VoteRunLead hosted sessions will tap into the conversation around the need for women to enter public service and get involved in their communities not just with words, but with action. As the midterm elections approach, the public will be invited to register to vote in WeWork buildings in an additional effort to promote civic engagement.
VoteRunLead trains women to run for office. And win. VoteRunLead is the largest and most diverse campaign training organization in the country. To date, VoteRunLead has trained more than 33,000 women to run for office and has seen an unprecedented number of women signing up. In 2017, VoteRunLead trained more than 9700 women to run for office and win. At VoteRunLead we believe women can #RunAsYouAre now, regardless of previous political experience. We believe women already have the life experience, talent and capacity to run for office. We believe if you have a passion to serve, you can run for office and win. VoteRunLead centers women of color. 60% of VoteRunLead alumnae are women of color and VoteRunLead is the only organization working in America’s heartland with a Rural Women’s Initiative.
WeWork is the platform for creators. We provide everything creators need to make a life, not just a living. There has been a macro shift towards a new way of work—one focused on a movement towards meaning. WeWork is accelerating this movement. As WeWork’s mission is to create a world where people work to make a life, not just a living, we’re proud to partner with this great organization, VoteRunLead. WeWork strives to advance gender equality in the workplace by supporting women at every level to break through their own glass ceiling. By aligning people and space, communities can come together to discuss important issues and engage in a dialogue about the topics that matter most to them. We’re excited to provide this “Town Hall” environment to foster frank discussions around the need for women to enter public service and get involved in their communities not just with words, but with action.
