The Countdown Project Building Community for Women in Politics Education • Government • Politics About Discuss Overview New York City, US Founders Jeri Powell Jeri Powell Founder I am an accomplished professional woman who left her secure job to focus full-time on getting women elected to public office. 1 more related The Countdown Project is dedicated to advancing gender equity in elected office. We aim to do this in two ways. Firstly, we are building an online membership community to provide women with a supportive space to engage with one another, share information and fundraise for each other as they plan their runs for office. Secondly, we are advising other entities as consultants in the development of leadership development training programs for women, preparing them to run for public office. At present, The Countdown Project is being incorporated as a nonprofit. I currently have one confirmed consulting client, after having secured seed funding to launch a training program. I am building the website but have not formally launched it.
