Have you ever received an email about the Public Leadership Education Network (PLEN) and wondered what it is all about? Come learn about this career-building conference designed for undergraduate women. Annabel Utz ’18 and Sunnie Ning ’18, Smith’s PLEN Ambassadors, will discuss their experiences with PLEN and new ways to get involved! Since 1978, PLEN has brought thousands of women from across the country to Washington, D.C. to explore careers in policy and connect with women leaders. PLEN seminars enhance class work and curriculum by giving students valuable access to women leaders in Washington, D.C. from the legislative, executive, and judicial branches; agencies; nonprofit organizations; and the private sector.

Upcoming PLEN seminars:
Women in STEM Policy: January 2-6, 2018
Women in Public Policy: January 9-13, 2018
Women and Congress: March 12-16, 2018
Women in Global Policy: May 14-18, 2018
