Programs for Ohio Women Empowered to Represent (POWER)

Strengthening gender equality and empowering Ohio women in public leadership through educational pathways is a priority at the John Glenn College of Public Affairs. By viewing leadership through a gender lens and acknowledging the experience and opportunity for women may be different, the Glenn College has developed certificate programs that train women for elected office and as community advocates, degreed programs that focus on women’s leadership in government and non-profit entities, and fostered a network for action to lift the hundreds of women that have served as speakers, mentors and program participants.
