Women’s Political Leadership in Massachusetts

Women’s Political Leadership in Massachusetts: A Panel Discussion

What does it take to run for elective office in the Commonwealth – a state with a disappointing record of electing women and people of color at all levels of government? What opportunities and barriers characterize the political landscape for women and communities of color? Join us for an interactive panel discussion of state legislators, political candidates, and local officeholders that explores how women access and utilize political leadership at the local and state levels in Massachusetts.

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP
