Spring Training Workshop – Campaign Finance & Fundraising

February 25, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Workshop 2 of 4 in the Spring Training 2023 Series

SC Women in Leadership is hosting the Spring Training workshop series to inspire and introduce women candidates and campaign volunteers to what they need to know to run for office. Are you ready to step up to bat??

After the November 2022 election, South Carolina dropped to an abysmal 48th in the nation with only 14% of our state’s legislature composed of women and only one woman elected to a statewide position. From the school board to the Governor’s Mansion, we need more qualified women to run for elected office.
