If you can’t see it you can’t be it, which is why role modeling is integral to the IGNITE model. Female elected officials, candidates, and policymakers speak with young women at high schools, on college campuses, and at IGNITE conferences and convenings. Elected women also provide civic and political engagement opportunities in the form of internships, jobs, and invitations to events. Read our welcome packet.
Thank you to the many elected officials who support the young women in IGNITE.
Is there a woman in office that you admire? Do you have a mentor or role model who is serving their community in an elected position? You can now nominate those sheroes to join IGNITE's Elected Network. Once we receive your nomination, the team will review it, and then extend a formal invitation to your nominee.
