AIT Post-Election Advocacy Workshop
On January 31st, over 40 women attended our first-ever AIT Post-Election Advocacy Workshop in New York City. Held in Partnership with the Ellevate Network, this action-packed workshop provided attendees with greater insight into how government (really) works as well as tools and tactics to influence they representatives and local political officials.
In the 90-minute, in-person session, participants learned about:
- How government (federal, state and local) works and who represents you
- Proven tools and tactics to influence on the political system
- How to prioritize the issues you care about (and be an effective advocate on behalf of them)
- Tips for having difficult (but productive) political conversations
On average, the workshop received a “usefulness rating” of 9 out of 10 (10 being “extremely useful”) and 93% of attendees agreed that they left with a better idea of how to influence the political process.
What we heard:
“This is MUCH needed. Great format, super content rich. Good mix of lecture, self-reflection.”
“The information I learned tonight will be really helpful to better focus my advocacy efforts and those I influence.”
“Enjoyed learning about stats and importance of women’s involvement in politics!”
“This was really great! Thanks for the resources for representatives and events.”
