The Public Leadership Education Network (PLEN) will bring together a diverse group of college women from across the country for an online seminar on Nov. 12-14, and TWU’s Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy wants to give TWU faculty, staff and students the opportunity to attend.
Ten students and two faculty/staff chaperones will be awarded scholarships to participate. The deadline to apply for scholarships is Oct. 9.
At the three-day PLEN Women of Color Influencing Washington seminar, participants will discuss current issues in the field, build professional skills and hear from women leaders on the front lines of policymaking. Students who attend will have 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.
