    There are many exciting issues on the November 2014 ballot. Have you ever considered volunteering on a campaign? Then join this workshop to learn more about the ins and outs of local politics. This is not a pitch for a candidate or a measure - just a workshop on what campaigns are really like, a sampling of the tasks that they entail, and the opportunity to ask fellow Good Ol' Girl and campaign manager Casey Farmer about her advice and recommendations for how to utilize your skills and passions in politics and how it can be fun!

    This event requires prior RSVP. Attendees MUST register by Sept. 10th for entry.

    Is social media really worth your time?


    Facebook is a way to keep in touch with friends, Twitter is a source of breaking news, and Instagram is a place to post pictures. However, they can be also used to brand yourself and/or your organization, engage with your customers, and even catch the eye of hiring managers. 

    Join us for a hands-on presentation that will include an overview of the most common social media sites, provide best practices, and discuss which sites are best for different purposes. 

    When: Tuesday, September 16th from 6:30-7:30pm

    Where: Office of Out and Equal Workplace Advocates

    155 Sansome St. Suite 450

    San Francisco, CA
