Strengthening gender equality and empowering Ohio women in public leadership through educational pathways is a priority at the John Glenn College of Public Affairs. By viewing leadership through a gender lens and acknowledging the experience and opportunity for women may be different, the Glenn College has developed certificate programs that train women for elected office and as community advocates, degreed programs that focus on women’s leadership in government and non-profit entities, and fostered a network for action to lift the hundreds of women that have served as speakers, mentors and program participants.
NEW Leadership Ohio

NEW Leadership Ohio is a non-partisan, week-long residential program that educates the next generation of college women for public leadership. NEW Leadership Ohio provides leadership training to college women through workshops in public speaking, diversity, work/life balance and sessions featuring elected and professional women dedicated to public service.

Ready to Run

Ready to Run is a bi-partisan program for women, who want to run for office, seek higher office, work on a campaign, get appointed to office or learn more about the political system. As a one-day conference, the program addresses laying the groundwork for public life with insight from a panel of current elected officials, campaign messaging, financing your campaign, an overview of the key elements to launching a political campaign and best practices to developing oneself as a community advocate.

Next Ready to Run training sessions are on December 7, 2017
