Researchers from the UW-Extension Local Government Center will share their new findings about why more women are not running for elected office. Erin Forrest, Executive Director of Emerge Wisconsin and Michelle Litjens of LTD Fundraising & Campaign Consulting will discuss what it is like to run for office and the training opportunities for women seeking elected office on both sides of the aisle.
