This weekend, I have the privilege of attending New York Go Run 2009 sponsored by The White House Project. Several months ago, I applied to attend the weekend-long training session that teaches women the in-and-outs of running for public office. Not positive I would receive a slot, I waited patiently for a response. Thankfully I received admittance! Established in 1998, The White House Project, is a leading advocate of ensuring women are in leadership roles. Marie Wilson, President & Founder, has been fighting for women's rights for over 30 years. She also co-created Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. And she's the author of Closing the Leadership Gap: Why Women Can and Must Help Run the World. She's certainly a member of the Women Making Moves community. The weekend is jam packed with activities. A number of women who hold public office in New York are attending to share their experiences. I plan to absorb as much knowledge as possible and share with readers of Women Making Moves. Read what other bloggers are saying about the event and check back soon for my recap of New York Go Run. Women, start making your Moves today!
