  • Ready to Run 2016

    Ready to Run™

    On April 8, 2017, more than 200 women took part in Ready to Run® at Mount Saint Mary’s University. The nonpartisan campaign-training program is designed to prepare more women to run for office and get involved in public service.

    Ready to Run annually features politicians, strategists, advocates and campaign professionals who provide practical advice from their careers in the political arena. Speakers in 2017 included well-known public servants such as retired U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, retired U.S. Rep. Yvonne B. Burke, L.A. County Supervisors Sheila Kuehl and Kathryn Barger, L.A. City Councilmember Nury Martinez and California Appointments Sec. Mona Pasquil.
