Resources: She Should Run

ct-img-17-01-23-she-should-runShe Should Run—A brilliant and forward-thinking organization focusing on a key leverage point in changing our politics: encouraging women to run for office. From their site:

We provide the spark for women’s political careers by inspiring more women to consider public office, and we make the case that public service matters. We know that when women run for office they win at the same rates as men. Yet women are not encouraged and recruited at the same rate as men. She Should Run’s robust Ask a Woman to Run program provides a community that encourages women to run and then connects women with resources, people and organizations who can help start their path towards public service. The She Should Run Incubator is our online program to help more women envision themselves in public leadership, and our way of providing thoughtful guidance and support for women considering a future run. Unique among other traditional organizations that recruit specific women for specific seats, our goal is to expand the community of women considering public service as a leadership path.
