In Congress, women only make up 16% of the membership. Only 3% of Fortune 500 CEOS are women. Now, we all know that women are capable of doing both. But something holds them back. The White House Project, a national nonprofit group dedicated to getting women into positions of power, has created a three day course called Women Rule! to teach women exactly how to do what they dream. The course is this June in New York City and there is a contest available to win the training. Check out the www.thewhitehouseproject.org between now and April 11, 2008 to enter.
