They Wyoming Women's Foundation hosted their LEAP into Leadership workshop in Sheridan this morning in hopes of giving more women the know-how and confidence to take on leadership roles in their community.
As a nation, the United States has relatively few women serving in leadership roles, and as a state, Wyoming lags behind the national average in terms of having women in elected positions. Richelle Keinath, executive director of the WWF, said that while today's workshop focuses primarily on helping women get ready to run for office, they're also talking about everyday leadership in the professional corporate world.
The WWF modeled today's workshop after a statewide workshop that takes place annually in Cheyenne. For more information on the WWF, click here.
