At Ready to Launch, we believe in expanding access to careers in government and politics and centering voices that have historically been excluded.
We expand opportunities for self-identifying women in Los Angeles County to learn about staff careers in politics and government through our public events and innovative fellowship program. We provide the training, mentorship, stipends, and support that our fellows need to succeed.
Support Ready to Launch! Your tax-deductible contribution helps expand pathways for women into careers in government and politics.
Meet our 2023 government fellows: Andrea, Caché, Isabella, Ivonne, Kathy, Kimberly, Michelle, and Paula!
We’re thrilled to announce our largest class of fellows yet!
Ready to Launch is excited to partner with the IGNITE chapter at UCLA to bring you Careers for Women in Government and Politics, a luncheon we’re co-hosting at UCLA for college women and recent grads who want to ignite their passion for politics!
Our application for our summer 2023 government fellowship is now live!
Our program provides in-depth training to prepare our participants for success. We connect participants with opportunities in politics and government, provide them a mentor, and help support stipends to ensure our fellows have economic access to these opportunities. We build community to help you learn and grow.
