Gender diversity in South Carolina politics is sorely lacking (a subject we'll be talking about soon). Upstate Republican Deb Sofield is one of those who understand that this is an area which needs to be addressed. Active in the Southeastern Institute for Women in Politics, she's heading up a class next weekend in Santee aimed at helping women become more active in politics, either as candidates or campaigners.
This organization is a non-profit and men and women are welcome to attend. One can register until the day before the event.
Considering a run for office? Or working in a campaign? This one-day session is designed to put all the elements in order so you can be organized and effective. Our session trainer, Deb Sofield, is an executive speech coach and when she isn’t working to help women of South Carolina run and win, she is the President of the Women's Campaign School at Yale.
