First Steps forward on Your Path to Political Leadership begins April 20, 2022

Designed for those looking to become future political champions in the next one to five years by those who have been there with input from those leading in politics at this time. 

First Steps is an interactive group cohort experience from April 20 to June 29, 2022, effectively designed for full schedules and dedicated to building diversity for a brighter future in political leadership.

  • Demystify the Political Process to find JOY in it! Setting a solid foundation to better understand what you are signing up for, how to be a conscious citizen, and why better decision-making is critical to becoming the ancestors now that future generations will be grateful for.

  • Understand where you are now, what values you deeply care about, and who are the role models who inspire you and why.

  • Find your most memorable voice to express YOU and what you stand for - clearly, confidently, and concisely. 

  • Vision a path forward from here; a runway approach matching your readiness with commitment, community, and connections. You don't need to do this alone.

  • An enriching group process that combines 24-7 online access with regular interactive sessions to walk through a meaningful cohort experience building on purpose and fulfilment without overwhelming already full schedules.
