PLEN women leave Washington, DC with the knowledge, skills, and connections they need to successfully start a career in public policy.

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.


PLEN has brought thousands of women from across the country to Washington, DC to explore careers in policy and connect with women leaders. PLEN seminars give college women valuable access to women leaders in Washington, DC from the legislative, executive, and judicial branches; agencies; nonprofit organizations; and the private sector. See the 2016 – 2017 Public Policy and Leadership Seminar Schedule and register for one today.
