Women in Public Policy

The public policy arena offers endless career opportunities, from government service to issue-based advocacy for nonprofit and for-profit organizations.

College women will explore how to influence the policy issues they are passionate about and learn the range of professional opportunities and skills required to be successful.  Over the course of the seminar, students will network and learn from female leaders on Capitol Hill, the executive branch, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and private corporations.
