Join us for virtual sessions to speak with leaders already in the field about their trajectory into the policy field and challenges they faced.

2022-2023 plenforums

women of color influencing washington

November 9-10, 2022

PLEN brings together a diverse group of students virtually from around the country for a PLENForum to discuss current issues in the field, build professional skills, and hear from leaders on the front lines of policy-making. This program will give students access to a powerful network of women of color who make and influence public policy everyday, from lobbying to working on a committee to heading government relations for a business.

Future LGBTQia+ leaders

june 14-15, 2023

Over the course of the PLENForum, students will network and learn from LGBTQIA+ leaders on Capitol Hill, the executive branch, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and private corporations. Participants will learn how to navigate the workplace as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, the practical skills you should bring to your first job after graduation, and post-graduate opportunities.

Recommend a student to attend a PLENForum, and we'll send them information about our seminars, events, and network!
