Get Involved: The White House Project

And now for something new at Style of Politics: a periodic feature called "Get Involved," profiling organizations, opportunities and events that put women in politics into action.

Today, The White House Project.

You can read more extensively about the work and mission of this organization on their website here, which centers on filling the leadership pipeline in civic and corporate arenas with women.

What I think is remarkable is that the White House Project is at a moment of transforming transition: their visionary founder Marie C. Wilson has passed the leadership baton to a new president, Tiffany Dufu. Tiffany is young, ambitious, dynamic and most critically, she is ready and eager to make her own path for the White House Project.  She spoke recently at a luncheon in Washington, DC about her plans as president, part of which include giving the organization more of a presence here, in addition to their headquarters in New York and regional centers around the country.

So, my point is this: if you're in DC, get ready for more from the White House Project. You might want to check out the DC Leadership Circle. And if you're in New York, they're hiring! To go along with Tiffany's new presidency, the organization is seeking a Chief Operating Officer. It's an incredible opportunity, so check it out.
