Women are crucial to the success of the business world and their accomplishments in the industry have been studied and modeled to no end—why shouldn’t we use their business acumen in government? Through their facilitation of productive conversation, businesswomen establish authentic relationships and demonstrate genuine care. By their example and through their leadership, woman can create more diverse business workplaces, providing opportunities for innovation to take flight. Still, only 3% of Fortune 300 CEOs are women and only 5% of S&P 500 companies’ CEOs are women. Businesswomen are at the forefront of redefining women’s roles as workers and fighting for workplace equality—and we can’t let their inspiration fall to the wayside. Emerge America wants to work with you to bring the rich experiences, business savvy, and bargaining skills of businesswomen to elected offices in 2016. Will you stand with us?
