The Women's Leadership Network (WLN) of the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri is a platform that provides women with the opportunity to support each other in their leadership journey and to advise and inspire the next generation of female leaders. The 116th Congress had an average age of 47, while the 127 women in the current Congress have an average age of 64. In 2001, men made up 39 percent of state legislators under 50, while women only accounted for 24 percent. This discrepancy highlights the need for structural reforms that will encourage young women to run for public office and provide them with support during their term. Leslie is a great example of a woman leader who has combined her military leadership training, education in positive psychology, experience as a coach, and life experience to help leaders overcome storms in business and personal life.
She is also the founder of Rung for Women, an organization that helps women achieve their goals in leadership roles. He has a degree in child psychology from the University of Minnesota and a master's degree in human resource management from Webster University. His expertise and commitment to women's issues make him an ideal leader for Rung for Women. Women often delay their political careers due to family responsibilities, which means they have less time in office to make significant changes.
Structural reforms that encourage young women to run for public office and provide them with support during their term are essential to correct this imbalance.
