About Ready to Run®: Ready to Run® Iowa is a non-partisan, campaign training program designed to encourage and train women to run for elective office, to position themselves for appointive office or to become involved in public life as leaders in their respective communities.

Although Ready to Run® Iowa addresses topics unique to women as they seek greater participation in the political process, the training is open to anyone who is interested in becoming more involved in politics and public service.

Participants will walk away with: 

  • "how-to" instructions on running for or getting appointed to political office
  • fundraising, advocacy and media skills
  • real-world advice and best practices from experts
  • more effective leadership skills
  • a better understanding of party politics
  • internet strategies for campaigns
