Nudging Women to Run
265 South Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA
This event is free and open to the public.
Dawn Teele studies the economic and psychological factors that drive women to seek political office. In a new research project, “Nudging Women to Run,” Teele, along with scholars at Rutgers University, Yale University, and the University of California, Berkeley, surveyed alumnae of women’s campaign-training programs and is in the process of designing experimental innovations to encourage women to launch political campaigns. A leading authority on women and politics, Teele’s research examines the causes and consequences of voting-rights reform, forms of bias in politics, and social-science methodology.
