Graduate school is a hot topic of discussion in every PLEN seminar. No matter our future plans, we’ve all spent time thinking about whether to go to grad school, what to study, when to attend, and where to go.

Join the PLEN Alumnae Network and George Washington University's Graduate School of Political Management to learn all about programs offered at GSPM! Featuring PLEN and GSPM alumnae, So You Want to go to Grad School? will showcase how GSPM can help you build on the skills that you learned at PLEN and take your career to the next level.

Not in Washington, DC? RSVP and receive a livestream link! Follow the conversation and share your grad school experiences online with #PLENAlumnae.

Light refreshments will be served from 6:00 - 6:30 pm EST, and livestream will begin at 6:30 pm EST.


For four decades, PLEN has been preparing women for public policy leadership. Whether this means opening up their eyes to possible careers, training them to negotiate their first salary, or helping them build the networks and confidence to get ahead, PLEN has been there to help young women forge their own path as leaders. Our year-long celebration will highlight PLEN’s rich history within the women’s movements for equality, showcase prominent alumnae, and look back at the impact we’ve made while continuing to break down barriers for future women leaders.
