Taylor: 'We prepare women
to enter the political pipeline'

Aug. 30, 2011

Annette Taylor, executive director of the Raleigh-based N.C. Center for Women in Public Service, addressed the Forum today.

"We prepare women to enter the political pipeline," Taylor said.

Of the 14 women who graduated from a seven-day training program this summer, half are already running for office, she said.

A one-day "Women on Board" workshop travels the state.

To build a statewide presence for the group, Taylor said she would be setting up regional advisory councils. "My goal is to set up partnerships and alliances everywhere."

Taylor mentioned two Charlotte-based graduates of the Center: Erica Frazier, a vice president at Wells Fargo, and school board candidate Ericka Ellis-Stewart.

She said she was looking for ideas on how to set up a statewide mentoring program for women.
