Women's Fund Training New Leaders

Staff Reports

Susan Olshuff, a Lenox fundraiser and consultant, reminded us of the new leadership program being launched for women in the western end of the state to prep them for potential political office.

The Leadership Institute for Political Impact, a program of Women's Fund of Western Massachusetts, is a yearlong inititative promotes leadership and community organizing and covers the legislative process and policy and running for political office. Different topics will be addressed in daylong sessions on Saturdays.

Olshuff was one of eight Berkshire women were selected for this inaugural session along with more than 30 others throughout Western Mass. "I can't wait to jump in and see what kind of trouble we can instigate!!" wrote Olshuff.

We can't either.
