Women in Politics
Panel Presentation: Scholarly research on women in politics suggests that women are much less likely to go in to political office than their male peers. One mechanism that increases the likelihood that women will run for office is being mentored and guided to do so. Therefore, Mount St. Mary’s University has participated in the Training Ms. President workshop for the past three years, including at Goucher College this past November. The workshop was a Thursday late afternoon to Friday evening all-female workshop that featured female politicians and politicos as speakers and had time between panels for one-on-one networking between students and speakers. These speakers talked to the students about how they got in to public office and the obstacles they faced. It is a "real talk" workshop in which we ask these speakers to candidly prepare our students for the obstacles they will face and how to overcome them and/or to strengthen their confidence in their own abilities to be in elected office. For this SPARC panel presentation, five panelists will explain the various steps to take, skills to work on, and personality characteristics that increase the success of women in politics based on what they learned in this workshop.
Panelists: Kelley Northam, Shahanaaz Soumah, Lyndsey Saunders and Bailey Raymond / Mentor and Moderator: Jamie Gianoutsos, Ph.D.
