Across the South and Southwest, candidates and their campaigns have begun to realize the need to populate their operations with those who reflect the broad spectrum of diversity. Recent results show the value of investing in people of color in the campaign staff structure - but this investment must be broad-based and deep. Yet, too often, campaign staff of color are underrepresented, underpaid, and undertrained.

Deciding to participate in BLUE Institute was one of the best decisions I have ever made for my future career... I learned so much about myself, what type of leader I am, about politics, how to run a campaign, and how to be an effective candidate.
