For Kentucky State Treasurer Allison Ball
FRANKFORT, KY - (19 Sep 2017) - Kentucky State Treasurer Allison Ball was selected as one of twenty-five participants for The Governing Institute's 2018 Women in Government Leadership Program.
"It is an honor to be selected for The Governing Institute's Women in Leadership Program," Treasurer Ball said. "We need more women to run for office and I am proud to be a part of this program that encourages women to assume a greater level of leadership."
The Women in Leadership Program brings together elected female leaders from across the nation to acknowledge their contributions, create a forum to discuss leadership, and seek their help in mentoring the next generation of female leaders to run for office. Each class also includes one rising star, a young woman not yet serving in elected office, but with the interest and potential to run in the future.
The Governing Institute is a division of e.Republic, the nation's only media and research company focused exclusively on state and local government and education. Governing focuses on improving government performance and outcomes through research, decision support, and executive education to help public sector leaders govern more effectively.
"The women in the Class of 2018 are subject matter experts, negotiators, civic activists, and pioneers," said Julia Burrows, director of the Governing Institute. Nominations were received for nearly 150 women for the Class of 2018. The class was selected based on career and educational accomplishments, personal recommendations, a commitment to actively participate and the goal of seating a diverse class. The 25 women in the program's new class will be profiled in the February 2018 issue of Governing magazine and will participate in Governing events throughout the coming year.
