Running for the greater good

Print Email
Written by Anna Richey

IT TAKES COURAGE TO OPEN YOUR LIFE TO PUBLIC SCRUTINY WHEN RUNNING FOR PUBLIC OFFICE. SOME PEOPLE SPEND YEARS BUILDING A RESUME, KNOWING THEY’LL STEP INTO A LEADERSHIP ROLE AT SOME POINT. SOME ARE INSPIRED BY JUST A SINGLE EVENT. FOR SOME, THE IDEA DOESN’T OCCUR TO THEM UNTIL SOMEONE ELSE SUGGESTS IT, AND THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE FOR WOMEN.

Research has shown that women are significantly less likely to be encouraged to run for office than men. Self-doubt often plagues women, and despite shifting traditional gender roles, women still tend to take on a greater share of domestic management, making it more difficult for women to envision what would happen to their families through a campaign and an elected position.

BRINGING WOMEN TO THE TABLE

As the population of southeast Minnesota grows, serious issues like affordable housing, availability of child care and living-wage jobs need to be addressed. According to Olmsted County data, 24 percent of households with a female single parent are below the poverty level, and that number grows to 34 percent when there are children in the home under the age of 5. Women must be at the table to discuss economic growth, transportation, infrastructure investment, parks and public space and other important political issues.

What motivates three women restaurateurs.

Some of the best moments in life happen around the dinner table. Whether in the comfort of our own home or at one of our favorite eateries, these conversations, reunions and celebrations are formative—and some become memories that last a lifetime. For three restaurateurs, this is exactly the kind of experience they’re bringing to our community—experiences that are people-centric, memorable and unique to the heartbeat of Rochester.

Rochester Restaurant Scene

Rochester’s dining scene has continued to grow, steadily bringing in new talent, tastes and experiences. Women are leading the charge as owners, managers, servers, bartenders, bakers, chefs and behind-the-scenes gurus making it all happen. Whether it’s managing staff or thinking up new menu creations, it’s apparent that women play a valuable role in the restaurant industry.

For a viable career opportunity with variety and excitement, the dining scene is an exciting way for women to thrive. Meet three women from local restaurants and learn what inspires them to stay healthy and hustle in an industry that never sleeps.

From the Ground Up

Women Are Re-wiring the Electrical Industry

From low to high voltage electricians to leaders of large public utility companies, the electrical industry literally powers our daily lives. And while the industry has been historically male dominated, more and more women are finding their place in the field. 

According to the National Science Foundation, women represent half of the total U.S. college-educated workforce, yet only 29 percent of the science and engineering workforce is female. Even more surprising is that of the more than 660,000 electricians across the U.S. workforce, only 1.5 percent is female.

For the women working in the electrical industry, no matter the role, they share one common belief: There is a place for women in the field.

BOOTS ON THE GROUND

Meet Andrea Tarpenning, an electrician and low voltage installer at Foster Electrical a Premier Company in Rochester. A former correctional officer of 16 years, she pursued her interest in the electrical field after a lifetime of being curious about how things work. “When I was a kid I was always interested in taking things apart and putting them back together. I wanted to know how and why things work the way they do,” she says.

More Women on the Move

Written by Brittney Marschall

A Renewed Grassroots Organization

While many females have held influential roles in Southeast Minnesota over the years, opportunities for more women to pursue leadership positions are ample as the area grows. 

More Women on the Move, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization, is dedicated to empowering women committed to inclusive, equitable, healthy communities and seeking and supporting women to run for elected office. The group strives to help women explore a variety of leadership positions throughout the community, regardless of their area of interest or expertise. 

The success of the original Women on the Move group, in its efforts to encourage more women to run for office and seek leadership roles, inspired the renewed More Women on the Move group to replicate that success as the Rochester group progresses.
