5K Race to Representation: Become A Sponsor

wpi_athleta 2014

Sponsorship

The Women & Politics Institute at American University strives to close the gender gap in political leadership. Our mission is straightforward: we provide young women with academic and practical training that encourages them to become involved in the political process; we facilitate research that enhances our understanding of the challenges women face in the political arena; and we give women the skills to run for public office, pursue political careers, and develop their leadership capabilities. Every day, we do everything we can to ensure that women’s representation in all realms of politics increases.

But in order to offer more courses, enroll more students, conduct more research, convene more special events, and ensure that more women will have a seat at all of the tables where the most important decisions are made, we need your help!

We invite you to help close the gender gap in political leadership by joining us as a sponsor for this event! All sponsorship proceeds from the Race to Representation directly benefit the Women & Politics Institute. Download the sponsorship form here.
