Ithaca College will be hosting Elect Her – Campus Women Win. The American Association of University Women as well as an organization called Running Start sponsors this program to encourage young women to run for student government on their campuses. This program is a 4.5 hour workshop and hopes to encourage leadership development but also to motivate young women to enter careers in politics in the future. Even though this program is centered on women running for office, it is open to both young men and women. Specifically, we are looking for enthusiastic individuals who are looking to develop their leadership further on campus.
In order to find this type of student, we are enlisting the assistance of you and our other campus allies. During conference calls with the American Association of University Women (AAUW), we have learned that women may not self-identify themselves as viable candidates that could run for office. Please help us identify passionate students that may need a push to recognize their leadership potential.
We ask that you nominate students by completing a short survey at our new website: http://www.ithaca.edu/sacl/osema/leadership/electher/. Nominated students will receive an email over winter break that will notify them of their nomination and urge them to apply. If possible, please complete all nominations by January 8, 2013. The Elect Her workshop will occur on March 2, 2012 from 10:30am to 3:30pm. If you have any questions about the Elect Her-Campus Women Win workshop please feel free to contact the Elect Her- Campus Women Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your help is very much appreciated.
