One hundred years after winning the right to vote, what are the current opportunities and challenge
for women pursuing elected office?  What are the roles they play as voters and as leaders of social movements?  And what can we expect from the 2020 presidential election cycle, which includes a record number of women candidates?  This State of Democracy event features a panel discussion among leading scholars and regional political leaders: Susan Carroll, Professor of Political Science and Senior Scholar at Rutgers University’s Center for American Women and Politics; Joanie Mahoney, Chief Operating Officer at SUNY-ESF and former Onondaga County Executive; and New York State Assemblywoman Pam Hunter.  Moderating and participating in the panel will be Kristi Andersen, Chapple Family Professor of Citizenship and Democracy Emeritus at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School, Cazenovia Town Councilor, and a regular panelist on WCNY’s Ivory Tower.

The Campbell Public Affairs Institute, named for Alan K. “Scotty” Campbell, was founded in 1996. The Institute’s mission is centered on citizenship, public leadership, and governance. The Institute explores the relationships among leaders, citizens, private organizations, and governments in an effort to understand the development and implementation of effective management and policy, and encourages civic involvement. Over the years, the Institute’s projects and initiatives have included the Pew-funded Government Performance Project, dedicated to finding practical solutions to the problems of government; CNYSpeaks, an effort to broaden and deepen public deliberation and community participation in local affairs; published monographs on federalism, information sharing and homeland security, and government transparency; the Campbell Conversations, an award-winning weekly public affairs radio program airing on Central New York’s largest NPR-affiliate; the Campbell Debates, a public Oxford-style debate series on public policy issues at the national, state, and local levels; and numerous lecture series of interest to the University and the regional community.
