"California Women Lead is very proud of all of the women candidates who took the risk and ran for elected office. These women are paving the way for the next generation of women leaders in California," said Cassandra Pye, President of California Women Lead. "The Board of Directors of California Women Lead looks forward to working with women from across party lines, from all levels of government, to ENGAGE EMPOWER ELECT more women to elected and appointed office in the state as we look forward to 2018 and beyond."

 

"California Women Lead is working one woman at a time to encourage their full leadership potential. To achieve that goal, we will be launching our new LEADership Academy in 2017 to engage women as civic leaders and help them excel as leaders personally, professionally, and politically, and to educate on important policy issues facing the state.  With over 12 modules being offered statewide, our hope is that we can continue to bring together women from all ethnicities and backgrounds, close some of the divisions that exist among women and work together to increase our collective representation in elected and appointed office in California," said Rachel Michelin, Executive Director/CEO.
