As their internships came to a close, the women who participated in PLEN’s Women & Public Policy Summer Internship Program were able to look back on their ten week stay in D.C. and reflect in their last blog post about what they learned about policy, leadership, graduate school choices, and making connections in the work place. Read more about what these outstanding women were able to take away from their summer in the nation’s capital.

This summer, the PLEN staff has had the great pleasure of working with five outstanding young women during our annual Women & Public Policy Summer Internship. The participants in PLEN’s Internship program are having meaningful experiences at various organizations and government agencies, including Strategic Health Care, National Academy of Public Administration, United Nations Population Fund, and First Book. Within the PLEN Intern Blog site, you can learn more about our interns’ placements, their everyday experiences in the workplace and tips they have found helpful to make the most out of their internship and professional endeavors. Please note that the views of our interns do not represent the views of PLEN as an organization.
For their first blog, our interns discussed the role of women’s leadership in politics, the idea of viewing women’s issues as global and human rights, the difficulties of networking and job searching, marketing your skills to future employers, and adjusting to the fast pace of Washington, D.C. Their experiences are diverse, meaningful and interesting, so we encourage you to step into their worlds via their blogs this summer!
