Women in Politics (WIP) is a three-day summer institute for young women from the Sacramento region. Participants get a first-hand look at the workings of state politics, focusing on issues affecting women and their communities.
Our presence in Sacramento and our lasting relationships with the players in state politics allow us to offer a unique experience to young women. We have access to a rich pool of supporters who lend their expertise to our programs – more than forty women, including liberals, moderates, and conservatives, volunteer their time to share information and perspectives. WIP provides an opportunity for young women to meet the people who represent them at the state capitol, and to witness first-hand the importance of women’s participation in the political process.

She Shares, launched in March 2012, is a unique conversation series featuring trailblazing women leaders who have created a lasting impact for women in California and beyond.
Each conversation is a candid and unrehearsed exchange with a prominent moderator. She Shares events provide an opportunity for business and cultural leaders, public figures, elected officials and other professionals to network and to be inspired by the personal journey of the keynote speaker. It also provides an opportunity for the next generation of women leaders to be mentored by accomplished professionals through our mentorship program. In 2021 there are 63 pairings in our mentorship class! Each year applications are accepted in December and you can apply at SheShares.net
She Shares is run in partnership with Tamara Torlakson (formerly with The Dewey Square Group). The CalCenter serves as the fiscal host of this donation based, philanthropic program. Visit sheshares.net for a list of this year’s class and mentor pairings, photos from our quarterly conversations, and for more information on this program.
