On behalf of El Pomar’s Forum for Civic Advancement, we are excited to invite Girl Scout Seniors, Ambassadors, and adult members to a virtual ‘Women in Politics’ event, co-hosted by Colorado Municipal League and Colorado 50-50 on Saturday, April 24, 2021 from 4-6:30 p.m.
Recognizing that Colorado ranks 18th on the 2019 Gender Parity Index due to its successes in some areas, such as the second highest share of women elected officials in the state legislature, and challenges in other areas, such as local and federal representation, this event is designed to encourage more women in Colorado to run for elected office, clarify the process of running, and provide resources for them as they consider running for elected office. The event also honors that socializing the idea of leadership and elected office to young people is one way to increase representation.
You can view the event invitation with agenda details in the flyer linked below. If this sounds like something you or a Girl Scout in your life would enjoy, please register here.
