Transitioning from running a campaign to leading a city is a huge challenge.
While some skills are transferable, newly elected mayors must immediately tackle challenges unique to the role of mayor. In particular for women and people of color, challenging the status quo and creating institutional change once in an executive role of power is easier said than done. Governing as mayor, with a focus on equity, sustainability, and democracy, requires a new set of skills.
This event is the first in-person training in a two-part cohort series, and is by invitation only. Attendees must commit to the full cohort to participate.
