What is Road to Run?

If we want to see gender parity in government in our lifetime, we need to take action now. Join She Should Run as we encourage and educate women about the importance of taking their first steps toward their next leadership opportunity.

Each Road to Run event focuses on a specific area of women’s leadership and how She Should Run and women leaders are changing the game. Speakers 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 2020 are virtual events so no matter where you live, you can tune in.

“Embracing Risk to Improve Your Leadership”

There are a variety of perceptions surrounding risk. Some of us think of risk as careless and irresponsible; others may think of risk as an exciting opportunity to try something new. Understanding how to engage with risk can open new doors for you–including the possibility of running for office. We know that women are more likely to calculate the costs and barriers of running for office, which can sometimes make the idea of considering a run sound reckless.

In a conversation moderated by She Should Run Political Pipeline Director Jarinete Santos, we spoke with State Representative Amber Mariano and City Commissioner Reina Saco about how they have embraced the unknown and how others can do the same.

Join us in the Community as we continue our conversation on finding your own purpose through public service.

Please share your thoughts on our Road to Run event with this survey that should take no longer than 3 minutes and will allow us to ensure this and future sessions meet our intended outcomes and we can make improvements for the future.
