The volunteers of Colorado 50-50 are proud to present “Winning With Women” on Thursday, November 18. The event will happen on Zoom beginning at 6 PM.
The purpose of the event is to demystify the process for running for office and we do it in two parts.
The first part is a panel discussion of elected women officials who will share how they decided to run for office, what was involved in campaigning, and what it is like to serve. This panel will highlight what it is like to run as a woman of color in Colorado. Our panelists are:
- State Representative Yadira Caraveo
- State Representative Naquetta Ricks
- Aurora City Council Candidate Becky Hogan
Colorado 50-50 volunteer Maia Yang, who serves on our Asian American Pacific Islander Committee, is looking forward to hearing from the panelists.
“As a woman of color, it’s exciting to see myself represented in politics,” she said. “It opens the door for me to envision a world where I, too, could run and win.”
The second part of “Winning With Women” is an intentional networking session where participants will have opportunities to speak in small groups. We hope you will encourage women to attend who should take their next steps in leadership. In the Zoom breakout rooms will be elected women officials, women who are curious about running, and those who want to support women running.
Registration via EventBrite is required and costs $5. Scholarships are available. Please contact Erin@Colorado5050.org.
We are grateful for our co-sponsors: the Colorado League of Women Voters, the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Colorado, and the Colorado Asian Culture and Education Network.
