The Why Not You! Conference is leadership conference focused on empowering women to get involved in politics and advocacy. The conference is free and open to anyone, although it will focus specifically on the challenges women face when seeking leadership opportunities and how to overcome those challenges and succeed. Participants will start the morning learning about political campaigns and will hear from women who have run for political office. They will share their motivations for running as well as the challenges and successes they faced. After lunch, participants will hear from women who work in various advocacy positions at non-profits in the local area. They will discuss what it takes to be a leader and how they use their voices to advocate for others. Participants will end the day by designing their own leadership action plans and will participate in a collaborative art project focused on advocacy and leadership. This is a non-partisan event and everyone is welcome to attend.
