How to Combat Sexism as a Woman in Leadership
Thursday, March 18, 2021 @ 12 PM ET
The challenge with combatting sexism is that it is often subtle and hard to recognize. Due to the prevalence of these thoughts and behaviors, people can be tempted to brush them off as normal. Even when sexism is easy to identify, many women feel like challenging these notions could put their leadership at risk. Unless women are equally represented in leadership, we won’t get the best results out of politics, business, or any industry. We know opportunities for women in leadership are more fruitful when sexist barriers are removed.
After attending, you will be better able to:
- Recognize sexism when you or others are experiencing it
- Shut down inappropriate thought patterns or behaviors
- Grow personal leadership confidence
Road to Run: Networking and Fundraising Fundamentals
Thursday, April 1, 2021 at 2 PM ET
Stop one on the Road to Run was all about leadership. As a leader, elected office or otherwise, you don’t lead by yourself. Your network is essential to your success and fundraising is a critical aspect of running for office. Networking can have a bad reputation, especially in politics, and fundraising, i.e. asking people for financial support for your campaign, can stir up all types of uncomfortable feelings. Through a conversation with local leaders, we’re going to show you:
- How to think differently about networking and fundraising
- How you can build and maximize your network now before you ever run for office
- How to start getting comfortable with asking people to support your vision financially.
