What is Road to Run?

Road to Run provides women with a starting place for considering and exploring a future run for office as well as a baseline knowledge of what goes into running for public office. Speakers from a variety of backgrounds, ethnicities, political leanings, and states will share their candid personal leadership stories and practical tips for how to navigate challenges and barriers to women’s leadership. Afterward, you can participate in a Q&A that will give you answers that you can apply to yourself or to support another woman you think should run for office.

All Road to Runs in 2021 are virtual events so no matter where you live, you can tune in.

Through four virtual events in 2021, you will get a behind the scenes look at the road to running for office by exploring the four fundamental components of running for office. Through this series, you will gain confidence in your own leadership skills and abilities, address barriers and fears you may have around running head-on, and figure out your first step towards your path to public office.


We hope you’ll join us at each stop along the Road to Run!

“How to Share Your Story”

Developing your voice is an empowering, crucial part of owning your leadership path. As a potential candidate or public leader, your plans and ideas are what others will support. And you’re probably here because something in your background or experiences is driving you to make a difference. That story – of who you are, where you came from, and your lived experiences – is the center of your leadership style.

With our partners, the Wyoming Women’s Action Network and the Equality State Policy Center,  we discussed with our speakers, Wyoming State Representative Andi Clifford and State Senator Tara Nethercott, how they developed and learned to share their own voice, how they learned to navigate digital communications, and how they used active listening as part of their communications with voters. This event was moderated by Commissioner Natalia D. Macker, co-founder of the Wyoming Women’s Action Network.
