Attracting more women--and nurses--to politics
October 2010 -- The 2012 Project would like to reach out to our members to tell them about their U.S. national, nonpartisan, 501(c)(3) campaign to encourage women in 8 target fields - including nursing - to pursue public office. Our goal is to diversify policymaking bodies along gender and professional lines, and our project is gaining national attention. The 2012 Project was featured on CNN American Morning and was covered by the Washington Post over the summer. You can also learn more from our website, www.the2012project.us.
We are seeking more opportunities for our faculty members to present to women in nursing including presenting at conferences or meetings where The 2012 Project may make a presentation to women attendees. If an in-person presentation is not possible, we are glad to explore alternatives, including webinars for your women members. We would also love to write a piece that could be published online - other groups and online news sources for women in health and medicine have requested writing from us about the impact of women nurses serving in public office.
