In this episode, I am excited to have on Rielly Karsh to talk about reframing the conversation around politics and motherhood, and why having more moms in positions of leadership matters.

Mom motivator and kid wrangler, Rielly is a former attorney, photographer, and passionate community leader. Lately, she answers to mom and councilwoman. An elected official in Clinton, NJ, where she lives with her husband and two kids, Rielly is dedicated to increasing the political engagement of moms at every level of the political landscape, helping them "run like a mother."

Topics Covered

  • Her journey running for office and why having more moms in positions of leadership matter.
  • Why we need more moms to run for office AND serve in leadership roles on campaigns, and how to deal with the nagging feelings of self-doubt.
  • How the process of running for office starts, and what tools Moms Running offers to women to get more moms to run for office.
  • How we help moms and society see beyond the label "just a mom," and see value in who they are and what they do.
