Woman2Woman believes that women need to be in the rooms where decisions are made. Women have knowledge, important perspectives, and leadership skills to contribute at city, township, county, state, and national levels. It should be commonplace -- not unusual -- for women to hold 50% of the seats on a board or commission.

RunWomanRun Cohort 2019-2020

Purpose of the Cohort

To offer a regular time and space for women candidates who are running for office to meet up as well as facilitate discourse on topics customized to the unique needs of women candidates. A key aspect of the cohort is to allow women to draw strength and input from other women running and to counteract the isolation many candidates feel. Emphasis on interaction, discussion, and engagement, not just presentation of information.

Structure

The cohort will be formed prior to the election year and run to election day. Approximately ten sessions will be held concluding in October.
