Apply to the Virtual Cohort

We are now accepting applications for our upcoming Virtual Cohort which begins on Thursday, May 7th at Noon EST/9 AM PST.

Who Should Apply

If you are considering a future run for office and are unsure of how to take the first step, then this program is for you. The program is designed to help you hone your vision of what your leadership can do in the world and in your community via public service. If you don’t see yourself running for office in 5 or 15 years or don’t even know if it’s right for you, that’s okay. The program will prepare you to be a stronger leader for however you decide to make an impact. By the end of the Virtual Cohort, you will know that serving in elected office is a possibility within reach.

If you are an active candidate looking for campaign nuts-and-bolts training, endorsements, or financial support, check out our interactive tool, Pinpoint. Pinpoint helps you find and share valuable local, state, and national resources related to running for and serving in elected office. If you are an elected official or have already run for office, we encourage you to ask a woman in your life to run for office or encourage her to start considering a future run by participating in the Virtual Cohort.
