Women & Policy in the Global Community
Seminar Dates | May 19 – 23, 2014
Start your international policy career by connecting with women whose work impacts the entire world.
College women will learn about international policy from women whose work impacts the entire world during this week in Washington, D.C. Students will hear from women leaders advocating for humanitarian issues, citizens’ rights, international security, and international development in an increasingly interconnected world.
Become an issue expert: Participate in sessions where you will learn issue-specific information about an array of international policy issues. Learn how to break into a policy career in these fields and get advice on which post-graduate degree may help you achieve your career goals. See last year’s seminar schedule here.
Expand your network: Seminar speakers are Congressional leaders, diplomats, State Department leaders, officials with international organizations, think-tank researchers, and corporate and nonprofit advocates. Visit their offices to see where policies are made and ask questions about their daily work and career paths. Attend a networking reception to make more connections with women in international policy.
Professional Development: Edit your résumé to land your first job or internship with the advice of a professional. Learn how to maintain the connections that you make during the seminar and how to negotiate your salary from a career coach.
