Breakout sessions 

Leverage Facebook to advance your campaign: You already know how to use social media for fun. Learn to harness the power of your social network to build support and deliver your message in a political campaign.

Immigration in Texas: Immigration is featured in the news on an almost daily basis. Learn what's happening on the ground in Texas with regards to DACA and other immigration issues, and hear about how you can get involved in advocacy work taking place across the state. 

Live your best (financial) life: Feeling financially empowered gives you the confidence to make plans and take chances. Learn to develop a personal budget and absorb top tips to own and master your financial wellness. 

Wage Negotiation 101: Navigating conversations about your salary can be daunting - especially if it's your first time. Learn the art of skillful wage negotiation so you get paid what you are worth.

Discover your pathway to public service: There are hundreds of opportunities to become a community changemaker -- but what's the right role for you? We'll explore the routes you can take as an activist, an advocate, a volunteer and as a public official so you launch your own path to meaningful service. 

Get ready for census 2020: Every decade the United States counts its citizens and uses that information to draw political districts. If a particular population of people grows, they get more representation; if one shrinks, they get less. Learn how you can help everyone be counted so we all get the representation we deserve. 

Campaign fundraising essentials: Show me the money: Scared to ask people for money? Think you don’t have the network to do it?  Think again. Women are incredible fundraisers and have massive networks they can tap to raise campaign funds. Transcend your fears and learn the mechanics of how to raise what you’ll need to run and win.
