WIRE is a nonpartisan organization committed to increasing the number of women in appointed and elected office in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. WIRE identifies and recruits candidates for public office and supports their campaign efforts with the wisdom of additional experts.
WIRE IS LOCAL. We cultivate women’s leadership in our communities and a pipeline for those seeking higher office.
WIRE IS NONPARTISAN. We support female candidates across the political spectrum.
WIRE IS PERSONALIZED. WIRE supports each candidate individually, provides mentors, and campaign guidance.
WIRE envisions a world where more women hold appointed and elected public office. WIRE is committed to expanding women's representation in local government today.
WHAT WE DO
WIRE maintains a database of current and future opportunities for elected and appointed positions. We publicize these opportunities to members and our expanded network to identify female candidates ideal for these roles.
WIRE actively recruits women by encouraging them to consider public service, supplying them with information and connections, and answers questions and/or offers advice about the steps required to move forward.
Once candidates are identified and recruited, WIRE encircles them with a broad spectrum of resources for success, including advice and available volunteer services. WIRE is with them every step
of the way!
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.
