Inform. Empower. Connect.
This week's edition highlights women on a mission - they inspire, they lead, they rule. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) shares why she ran for office, Bird + Stone gives us a final chance to buy bracelets that give back and The Tory Burch Foundation wants to see you at their #EmbraceAmbition Summit.

What We're Excited About: Women Rule: The LA Summit
REGISTER HERE to join transformative women driving the conversation and championing today's most important issues. The Summit will feature a half-day of programming including one-on-one interviews, panel conversations, high-level networking and interactive experiences. Know a woman who rules? Request an invitation for her to join you at the Summit on June 5.

No matter your level or years of experience, you always have more to learn. The smartest people in life, and the best leaders, are those who acknowledge what they don't know and surround themselves with people they can learn from and seek out advice and guidance.

Redefining the Run for Political Office
"I share my story to redefine what it means to look like a politician — not just for myself but for all women. I know when I let my light shine, others will be encouraged to let their light shine too." said Cierra Jackson, the newest Running Start #ILookLikeAPolitician Ambassador, elected at the Young Women to Watch Awards.
