A New Home for Elect Her

After many months of careful consideration and thorough review, AAUW and Running Start have agreed that Running Start is the right home to continue Elect Her’s successful trajectory.

Just as AAUW is now sole owner of former jointly-managed programs — and positioned to grow them at a faster pace — we’re confident that Elect Her can continue to grow under Running Start’s ownership.

We’re proud of our successful collaboration and confident that Running Start can build on that success and bring more young women to politics in the coming years.

 

Here’s how AAUW is shaping the next generation of leaders.

Each year, AAUW’s campus leadership programs shape the lives of thousands of college women to be the next generation of leaders. Students who belong to the AAUW college/university members program will receive priority application preference.
