Workshop: Public Speaking 101 for Young Women

Public Speaking 101 for Young Women. Workshop by Running Start's founder Susannah Wellford.

Over the past 16 years, Susannah Wellford has founded two organizations designed to raise the political voice of young women in America.

In spring 2007, Ms. Wellford founded Running Start to inspire young women and girls to political leadership. Running Start furthers the work begun by the Women Under Forty Political Action Committee (WUFPAC), which Susannah cofounded in 1999 and led for the first five years. WUFPAC is a national women’s group dedicated to electing young women to political office. A nonpartisan organization, WUFPAC is the only political action committee in the United States devoted to helping young women of all parties run for elected office.

This workshop discusses the importance of public speaking as a leadership skill, explores the barriers women face in this area, and have participants practice how to effectively communicate.

Discussion will include:

  • As a young woman, how do I make others take me seriously?
  • What are tricks I can use to look more confident while speaking?
  • How can I use the fact that I am a woman to my advantage when speaking?

The event will be in English with simultaneous translation into Ukrainian.

Remember to bring your passport or driver's license.
