Save the Date: YEO Women’s Conference 2019
Young Elected Officials:
We are proud to announce the date and location for our first stand-alone YEO Women’s Conference, being held January 31 — February 3, 2019 in New York City!
To meet the particular and self-identified needs of our women members, the YEO Network formed a Women’s Caucus several years ago. The Women’s Caucus previously met annually for a Women’s Pre-Conference prior to our National Convening. In response to feedback collected from Women’s Caucus members, the YEO Network is planning a stand-alone Women’s Conference to provide a safe space to build sisterhood and uplift our women identifying members, provide policy support, as well as opportunities for leadership development. Our vision is to bring progressive elected women from all over the nation, from different backgrounds together to dissect the current state of women in America and how to move forward and build power in our current political climate. We will tackle issues around women’s equality, uplift and self-care. The women’s conference will prepare our women identifying members for the challenges of navigating public office, provide them with the continued professional development they seek, and elevate their voices and leadership within the progressive movement.
We have also formed a planning committee of outstanding YEO Women who are leading the progressive movement across the country and helping to shape 2019’s conference experience. Thank you to our host committee for their work so far and all the work they will do in the next weeks and months to help make this event possible.
We will be updating our members about what’s in store in the weeks to come. If you are interesting in attending our 2019 Women’s Conference, follow the YEO Women’s Caucus on Facebook for updates!
