Work in Progress: Political Campaigns

Curious about what it takes to work on a political campaign, how to navigate a career as a campaign staffer, or just interested in learning what happens behind the scenes of a political campaign?

With midterm elections on the horizon, this conversation will explore wide-ranging experiences and perspectives

on campaign work in a bipartisan discussion moderated by Mo Elleithee, the founding executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service.

Panelists will share lessons gained from local and national campaign work. They include (with more to be confirmed):

Lucinda Guinn, vice president of campaigns for EMILY's List.

Marlon Marshall, the former director of states and political engagement for Hillary for America.

Katie Walsh Shields, the former chief of staff of the Republican National Committee and former deputy chief of staff of operations for the Trump Administration.

Prior to his role at the Institute, Elleithee was the communications director for the Democratic National Committee and served as senior spokesman and traveling press secretary for Hillary Clilnton’s 2008 campaign.

Network in Progress: Following the panel, we’ll have conversation starters to spark discussions to help you build your network with peers in your field or desired field, plus light refreshments and a cash bar.

This program is presented in partnership with Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service. Launched in 2015, the Institute is the first of its kind in DC and is dedicated to reconnecting young people with the notion that politics is a noble vehicle for public service and prepares them to become the next generation of leaders.
