Ready to Run® Indiana is a new, all-encompassing non-partisan initiative hosted by the Women4Change Leadership Series geared to encourage and train women interested in seeking office as well as inform and educate those interested in working to help increase the number of women holding political office here in Indiana.
It comes as no surprise that the number of women holding public office in Indiana is far below the national average. We can and we will do better. As part of a national movement committed to electing more women to office, our goal is to not only encourage women to run but to guide them to success by providing comprehensive training, necessary skill development and the networking and mentorship opportunities needed to run effective campaigns.
Ready to Run® Indiana is part of a national network founded by the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University.
Women 4 Change Leadership Series is a 501(c)(3) with the specific purpose to mentor and empower women to achieve greater political leadership at the local, state and federal levels. We will:
- Encourage civic and political leadership by women, primarily in the State of Indiana
- Provide education and training in civic and political engagement for women, primarily in the State of Indian
- Increase support and understanding of the importance of women’s leadership in civic and political affairs
- Serve as a non-partisan educational resource about women’s civic and political leadership
