MADISON – Wisconsin Women in Government (WWIG) is accepting applications to its Leadership Seminar, a two-day professional development and knowledge-building opportunity offered in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs.
Twenty-five participants will convene on the UW-Madison campus on February 25 and March 4, 2022, for two full days of instruction, learning activities, and networking. Courses will cover a broad range of issues— everything from organizational structure to gender politics and more — that will resonate with individuals working in or with government.
The small cohort ensures all participants have direct access to LaFollette faculty for instruction and feedback. It also enables them to actively apply course material and develop relationships with faculty and each other. Additionally, attendees will receive free admission to a WWIG networking event in 2022.
“Our partnership with the La Follette School enables us to connect their renowned faculty members with emerging leaders in Wisconsin,” said WWIG President Amanda Graham. “This is a unique, rewarding, and enriching program that positions women for growth and success in their careers. We are thrilled to bring it back.”
Women who work in local, state, or federal government, as well as women who interact with the government as part of their private-sector employment, are encouraged to apply.
Applications are currently open and are due December 10. Acceptances will be mailed by January 14, 2022. Participants must commit to attending both days of instruction. Tuition is $400 and includes lunch and refreshments during days of instruction. The balance of program costs not covered by tuition is funded with the WWIG Gala and generous sponsors, including the Wisconsin Counties Association.
