Blueprint for Winning Academy

50-50 in 2020 recruits, trains and mentors Iowa women to hold public office. This Iowa Women’s Foundation grant will support the second biennial Blueprint for Winning Academy, which is an intensive training program for strong female candidates. Using a bi-partisan, issue-neutral approach, the Academy assists each candidate in developing a “blueprint” for her campaign. The focus is on communication, fundraising, message, presence, and media.
