Political Me: Exploring Pathways to Public Leadership and Civic Involvement

  • Tuesday, September 18, 2018
  • 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
  • BDO - 1801 Market Street, Suite 2400, Philadelphia


2018 has been the year of the female candidate. More women are running for office than ever before, as we collectively work toward gender parity in our political system.

Yet there is still much work to be done.

At this panel discussion, several women who are shaping the future in their own communities through political engagement will share their stories. You will hear about their paths to politics, their greatest victories and frustrations, and ways that we can all become more involved.

Whether you consider politics a personal interest, a volunteer opportunity or a career aspiration, join us to find out how to use your talents to reach your full political potential.

Our panelists represent various roles and affiliations across the political spectrum.

  • Amber Hikes, Executive Director of the Office of LGBT Affairs for the City of Philadelphia
  • Eryn Santamoor, Candidate for Philadelphia City Council At-Large
  • Nina Ahmad, Former Candidate for Lieutenant Governor
  • Barbara Kigozi, Active Member of Germantown Steering Committee

The panel will be moderated by Elizabeth Roggio, Corporate and Political Associate at Kleinbard LLC.

Thank you to our in-kind sponsors, BDO and Capital Grille Philadelphia, for their contributions to this event.
