On Thursday, October 7, Southwest Seattle Business and Professional Women present
Women & The 2010 Elections:
Will We Be Better or Worse Off on November 3rd?
Cathy Allen, local political commentator and international women’s leadership advocate, shares with us what’s at stake for women in the upcoming election. Will we have more women elected? What about our Washington State House and Senate: could we see a change of leadership? And those huge initiatives, from privatizing liquor sales, to turning back the soda tax and cutting more of the state budget to voting for a public safety levy to keep officers on the streets. How will that change our lives, if they pass?
Cathy Allen, President/Owner of The Connections Group, Inc., has spent the past twenty years working to help communities, governments, non-profit associations and women’s groups better communicate to the press, the public and politicians. Allen has conducted trainings and been a consultant in more than 34 states, and 18 countries including Morocco, Jordan, Egypt, Croatia, Hungary, Spain, Algeria, France, Mexico and Cuba. She recently returned from training Muslim women to be more effective in Morocco. Allen has conducted workshops on achieving power for dozens of organizations such as the National Education Association, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Business & Professional Women, National Parent’s & Teacher’s Association, the National League of Women Voters as well as a number of institutions including Harvard, Yale, Oberlin, the University of Washington, and Michigan State University. In 2000, Allen co-founded the Center for Women and Democracy at the University of Washington.
