Do you aspire to: 
* Run for office in 2018?
* Start preparing for a future run for public office?
* Work or volunteer on a political campaign? 
* Become more politically active?

Then plan to attend the first ever “Ready to Run” workshop in Washington, D.C., hosted by The Graduate School of Political Management on Saturday, March 3 from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on GW's main campus in DC. The event will be held at the Milken School of Public Health, 950 New Hampshire Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20052. 

You'll learn from the top practitioners and consultants from both sides of the aisle about how to run a political campaign. And you’ll meet key officials from political parties and groups who support women candidates.

This one-day bipartisan women's political leadership training program, developed at the Center for American Women & Politics at Rutgers, will help you prepare for the 2018 elections, either as a candidate or as a campaign staffer/volunteer.
