Shortly before election day, the Southeastern Institute for Women in Politics relocated to a new cyber-home. Entering their fourth year in existence with the knowledge that South Carolinians are ready for more women to enter into the political arena, the Institute decided that it was time to "kick it up a notch" with a new website featuring the Campaigns on Demand Contact Profiler.
The profiler will be particularly helpful in managing the contacts from women who want to run for elected or appointed office, volunteers, participants in campaign training and their fundraising initiatives. The database maintains all that, in good order, plus the contact information of women who have submitted their resumes to the South Carolina Gubernatorial Appointments Project (SC GAP), a project of the Institute. As appointed positions on Boards and Commissions open up, the Institute must be able to quickly and efficiently find the women who've been identified as "willing and able" to serve, and submit their resume's to the Governor.
Now that South Carolina has elected its first female Governor, the Institute hopes that more women will take inspiration from her journey and decide to run for office.
