Lived Experiences as Candidates

September 20, 2021

About the event

While campaigns share many similarities, your individual journey as a candidate will look very different depending on your background, race, culture, geography, and overall identity. Our Lived Experiences as Candidates panel gives you the opportunity to tap into the minds of leaders across a broad range of backgrounds and communities. They’ll share their insight, campaign experiences, and answer your questions..

This is part of NDTC’s Build Blue Week, and you can find more upcoming events here. 

You’ll learn:

  • How to navigate the different obstacles and opportunities faced by non-majority communities. 
  • The importance of representative leadership and the important role candidate diversity plays in our democracy. 
  • Resources candidates can turn to for support as they chart their path to office. 

Come prepared with your questions for this interactive presentation and leave with the tools you need.
