Unleashing Leadership in Your Community
Time and again, people turn to us for ways of engaging in their communities; this isn’t our most visited blog post for nothing! It makes sense–our research has shown that a key motivator for women to explore public leadership is a cause that they’re passionate about and that affects their community. But a lot of women don’t know where to start–and that’s where we come in!
This month, we’re excited to roll out two new programs for women looking to explore their civic engagement and become more involved in their communities, not to mention getting an idea of the different forms that public leadership can take. Both free courses can be taken at your own pace and on your own time, so you can fit it into your schedule. Read on to find out which one is the right fit for you!
If running for office seems waayyy out of your comfort zone, Power in Purpose is the program for you. The curriculum is focused on identifying your purpose, as well as your core values and strengths, to best serve your community–and show up for the things you care about. Power in Purpose is available as an audio course, but if you’re more of a reading/writing learner, you can use the accompanying workbook as the main course material.
Best if you:
- Are eager to uncover what matters most to you
- Need help defining your “why”
- Want to learn more about your unrealized strengths
- Love to learn by listening to podcasts
If you’re already rolling up your sleeves and ready to dive in, you’re a perfect fit for Building a Better Community! This course provides weekly tips and activities via email for taking your purpose and community goals to the next level. Prefer to do it all in one fell swoop? Download the workbook and take it at your own pace!
Best if you:
- Want to become a better advocate for yourself and others
- Want to address issues that are important to your town or neighborhood
- Are looking for ways to be more active in your community
- Like to learn a little bit at a time
Both programs are flexible, free, and can fit into your schedule (yes, really 😉). To get started, just sign up for the free She Should Run Community. While you’re there, poke around some of our other resources, like our Public Office Profile Suite, the Starter Kit, and past webinars, as well as our events page to register for upcoming webinars that will dive into how to get started in politics and the key issues affecting women today.
She Should Run’s Signature Curriculum was made possible with the support of the Crimsonbridge Foundation.
