WCSA President Candidate Statement:


Emily Richardson

My name is Emily Richardson and I am thrilled to announce my candidacy for President of the Women's Congressional Staff Association (WCSA). I have been a member of WCSA for two years and, from the very beginning, have been in love with WCSA's members and mission. 


For the past year, I’ve had the honor to serve as Co-Chair of Events & Activities and am proud of the events and networking opportunities we provided for our members. I also served on the planning committee for WCSA's 2018 Annual Summer Leadership Conference, which drew record attendance and featured for the first time ever a U.S. senator as the keynote speaker.


I want to build on these successes to expand membership, promote the organization on and off the Hill, and ensure through our new Diversity and Inclusion Committee that all member interests are adequately represented. As too many of our members have learned through firsthand experience, the Hill can be an intimidating, hostile, unfair environment for women. At the same time, it is one of the most unique and special workplaces in the country. As President, I want to help every WCSA member eliminate experiences in the former and realize her full potential in the latter. Serving on WCSA’s Board has been one of the most rewarding and enriching experiences I’ve had here in Washington and I’m excited by the prospect of what we can achieve together this year. With that, I ask that you please vote for me to be your next President.
