PLEN brings together a diverse group of students from around the country for a three-day educational seminar to discuss current issues in the field, build professional skills, and hear from women leaders on the front lines of policy-making. This program will give all students access to a powerful network of women of color who make and influence public policy every day, from lobbying to working on a committee to heading government relations for a business.
We invite all students to attend as we lift up and learn about the important influence women of color have on all levels of policy making.
Our 2021 Women of Color Influencing Washington seminar will be a virtual program due to continued concerns regarding COVID-19.
Seminar: November 12-14, 2021
Scholarship: October 22, 2021
Registration: October 29, 2021
