Help women run for office as a campaign volunteer.

Are you ready to have more women’s voices heard in policies and issues that affect our communities and families? Do you want to support women who are running for office? Then this course is for you! 

Effective campaign management is the backbone of a successful political campaign. By defining clear goals, developing a comprehensive campaign plan, building a skilled team, utilizing data-driven strategies, crafting compelling messages, implementing fundraising strategies, mobilizing supporters, and remaining adaptable, you can steer your candidate’s campaign towards victory. 

Women can’t run for office alone – in this training track, you’ll learn how to use your experience and expertise to help another woman get elected.

Why should you help women run for political office?

Inspiration for the Next Generation: When young girls see women taking the lead and actively participating in the political process, it sends a powerful message – that their voices and aspirations are valid and that they, too, can aspire to positions of power and influence.

Affect Change and Equality for Women: When women run for office, they bring unique perspectives, experiences, and priorities to the table. Women often take a collaborative approach to solving collective issues. Having more women in leadership leads to more women-friendly policies that focus more on family, children, and healthcare.
