Institute for Public Leadership



  • Institute for Public Leadership (IPL) is a campaign-skills workshop for women interested in politics.
  • Occurs in August in election off-years.
  • Nationally developed program with an intensive curriculum about management, running for public office, and women interested in issue advocacy.
  • Participants will be exposed to gauging public attitudes and opinions, determining viable candidate, developing a campaign strategy, designing messages that persuade voters, planning a budget and raising money, organizing a campaign, planning a communications strategy that delivers your message effectively to voters, and employing tactics to get out the vote.
  • Learn from real world experience as women who have been in the campaign trenches present each session.
  • It is vital for women to get more involved politically and speak on the issues.
