Join us June 8th & 9th for The Powerful IDEA Awards & Expo in Washington D.C


This week’s news about the Supreme Court rejecting Roe v. Wade as the law of the land has been unsettling and deeply troubling. A woman’s right to make choices about her own body are under attack and it’s a bigger rallying call than ever to support Democratic & Progressive candidates, founders, consultants, campaign operatives and more.

The Powerful IDEA Awards, Career Fair, & Talent Expo is a two day event which honors best in class progressive communications & leadership as well as connects job seekers with available roles in progressive politics. The purpose is to elevate, celebrate, and shine a spotlight on the people and programs that power progressive politics, building our pipeline of talent to fight for our democracy. The Powerful IDEA Awards & Expo will help to educate the public on what our industry does, as well as connect both seasoned and new talent to our pipeline that desperately needs to fill roles ahead of the midterm elections.

Here are some updates on the event:

Meet Us At The Party!

GAIN POWER is proud to partner with THE Party, an event to celebrate the strength of our democracy, and that in the face of a pandemic, challenges to voting, an insurrection, and efforts to undermine our election system itself, we staved off threats to that system and our country triumphed. This is an event to celebrate everyone who worked tirelessly for years to keep us together. In the midst of trauma, stress, and exhaustion, we achieved something big — but we have been denied celebration and catharsis. THE Party takes place Thursday, June 9, 2022.

The event includes performances by Lil Jon & DJ Sosupersam as well as a DJ set from Questlove. Kerry Washington & the Honorable Stacey Abrams will be making appearances too.
