UC & Xavier Student Government cordially invites you to attend the Elect Her Networking Reception on February 11th at 3pm in Stratford Heights Pavilion as a culmination to the Elect Her Conference. Elect Her—Campus Women Win, is a project founded by AAUW and Running Start, and is the only nationwide program that encourages and trains young women to run for student government on their campuses. In a five-hour training on a college campus, Elect Her-Campus Women Win provides students with research and information about women and politics, inspiring local speakers, and interactive campaign exercises. This year the University of Cincinnati and Xavier University are excited to host U.S. Congresswoman Jean Schmidt, Ohio Representative Denise Driehaus, and City of Cincinnati Councilwoman Yvette Simpson. We are also pleased to announce that UC’s Director of Public Relations, Greg Hand, will be speaking about “The Importance of Message”.
In 2011, Elect Her-Campus Women Win trained more than 400 participants on 17 campuses. Results show that after the training almost double the number of students said they would run for student government and for political office than before the training. Plus, 100% of the participants reported that they would recommend Elect Her-Campus Women Win to a friend.
