More New Leaders
Partners in three states have just completed their NEW Leadership summer institutes, winding up this year's programs. Congratulations to our partners in Puget Sound, Wisconsin, and Oregon, and to all the women who have stepped up to hone their leadership skills and start figuring out what they will do to change the world! 
Ready to Speak Out, Ready to Run
Thirty-five participants attended an intensive post-Ready to Run™ workshop, Effective Presentation and Communication Skills, on June 20 at CAWP. They learned from expert trainer and Rutgers Professor Karla Jackson Brewer how to conquer speech anxiety and tested their new-found skills.

It's not too early to mark your calendar for next year's Ready to Run™. Save these dates: March 21-22, 2014!

Did you watch Texas State Senator Wendy Davis's now-famous filibuster? She ran for office to stand (literally!) for what she believes in. Why not stand for elective office yourself?
