Only PLEN offers college women intense, specialized seminars where you’ll experience the excitement of a public policy career, discover how you can have one, and network with women who can help you build one – all in 3 to 5 days. Savvy women policy makers serve as mentors for you – Members of Congress, presidential advisors, major judicial officials, corporate lobbyists, leaders of national nonprofit organizations, and other policy professionals in Washington, D.C.
PLEN alumnae never leave the PLEN family. Seven out of 10 alumnae report that PLEN somehow factored in securing their first job. An even larger number say that they used skills learned through PLEN in their first job. Alumnae also play a large role in spreading the word about our seminars on their campus as PLEN Ambassadors.
We strive to make our seminars affordable for students at colleges and universities across the country, and offer need-based scholarships for outstanding students who demonstrate leadership and commitment to pursuing policy careers. Scholarships are enabled by generous sponsorship from individuals, companies, and foundations that support the next generation of women leaders.
