The event, hosted by political consultant Mary Hughes, will advocate two political initiatives that promote women to attain positions of leadership, according to an AAUW press release. The meeting runs from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Los Altos Library, 13 S. San Antonio Road, Los Altos.
Hughes, president of the consulting firm Hughes & Co., will speak about the "2012 Project," an initiative to support women in running for Congress and local legislature that's sponsored by the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University, said Claire Noonan, an AAUW representative.
The event is also a forum for the AAUW's "Elect Her!" project, a similar campaign that focuses on advising college women how to run for campus office and beyond.
Hughes is a long-time campaign advisor and director for politicians like former House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi and San Jose Mayor Ron Gonzalez.
