Many of our alumnae have gone on to run for office, work on campaigns, and advocate for change, thereby diversifying and enriching the political arena. By fostering a new generation of female leaders, Running Start is not only breaking down gender barriers but also contributing to a more inclusive and representative democracy, where women's voices are heard and their perspectives shape the policies and decisions that impact our communities and the world.
