Programs for Ohio Women Empowered to Represent (POWER)

We need more women in public office.

Women are underrepresented in government, including in Ohio, where only 29% of elected officials are women. POWER programs at the Glenn College train women to run and win political campaigns, increase their influence in public life, and expand the diversity of women in politics and government.

More women in politics is not only fair, it improves how government works. Research shows that women are more likely to be collaborative and consensus builders, motivated by a desire to serve their constituents, responsive to the needs of women and children, and seen as trustworthy and honest.

The Glenn College relies on financial support from generous sponsors to keep POWER programs affordable for participants and ensure that all women can participate.
