What is the Pipeline?

The Sue Shear Institute's Pipeline programs are a non-partisan effort designed to help individuals enter the political arena and hone career and management skills by working on grassroots issues and political campaigns.

Styled as a campaign bootcamp, Pipeline to Public Office is a two day workshop that prepares participants for the 2012 campaign election cycle and offers advice on enhancing organization and communication skills. Faculty members include Democratic and Republican women who have held elective office and managed successful political issue and candidate campaigns.
