Lunch will be provided. For more information contact Kari Anne at karm@pdx.edu.

Elect Her—Campus Women Win, a collaboration between AAUW and Running Start, is the only nationwide program that encourages and trains young women to run for student government on their campuses. In a five-hour training on a college campus, Elect Her provides students with research and information about women and politics, inspiring local speakers, and interactive campaign exercises.

In 2014, Elect Her-Campus Women Win trained more than 1,000 participants on 50 campuses. Of the students who reported running for student office after the training, 78% WON! Approximately 12% more students said they are considering running for political office after the training than before. Plus, 100% of the participants reported that they would recommend Elect Her-Campus Women Win to a friend.
