Opportunity for progressive women

This is already an historic year for women, with the first woman ever to be nominated for president from a major political party. But our work is not over. While Hillary Clinton sits at the top of the ticket, our partner, Emerge Wisconsin, is training female leaders here in the state to continue breaking glass ceilings. Emerge Wisconsin, the state’s premier candidate-training program exclusively for women, will accept applications for its 2017 class until Nov. 18, 2016.
If you are a progressive woman who has ever considered running for office, you should apply!

Emerge Wisconsin is an affiliate of Emerge America, which is training the next generation of female Democratic leaders across the country. Women will be selected to participate in the 2017 class that begins in January 2017. Emerge Wisconsin’s curriculum includes training in public speaking, fundraising, campaign strategy, field operations, labor and endorsements, networking, media skills and messaging and ethics in politics.  Participants meet monthly for six months.

Emerge Wisconsin has trained more than 175 women since its founding in 2006.

The deadline is Nov. 18, 2016. The application is available at the below link or by contacting Emerge Wisconsin at www.emergwi.org or by email: contact@emergewi.org

I haven't personally been through Emerge but some of the female leaders in La Crosse have been participants and highly value it.
