PLEN’s rich and diverse network of alumnae, speakers, and other volunteers provide students with life-long career resources, mentor opportunities, and support. PLEN alumnae have gone on to high levels of government, to political appointments in the executive branch, to start their own nonprofits, to climb the corporate ladder, to run for office, and so much more. See video testimonials from our alumna for more information on the life-changing impact that PLEN has on college women.
