Coming up in mid-May, the Wyoming Women's Foundation, the Wyoming Women's Legislative Caucus and Leap into Leadership invite women in the Cowboy State to the first-ever Leap into Leadership Community Workshops.
The purpose is to build leadership capacity of women, focusing on how women can help create Wyoming's best possible future.
With a goal of ultimately encouraging women to seek legislative office – there are about thirteen House representatives and one female senator – Sarah Mikesell-Growney with the Wyoming Women's Foundation discusses why women are less likely to be involved in political leadership roles.
The White House Project is providing the training for the workshops. This bipartisan, non-profit organization aims to support women and the issues that allow women to lead in their own lives and in their local, state, national and global communities.
Mikesell-Growney adds that ideally, a balance is sought.
Cost to attend, which includes the training sessions and lunch, is only $15. Registration and payment must be received by May 3rd.
