Wisconsin Women in Government (WWIG), a statewide, nonpartisan, non-profit organization of professional women in and around government service, is pleased to open applications for the annual Leadership Seminar. The program is offered in cooperation with the La Follette School of Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
This two-day professional development opportunity will be offered on March 3, 2023, and March 10, 2023. It is designed for women who are currently working in or with local, state, or federal government and who want to develop a range of leadership skills, including management and communication.
“Leadership Seminar is one of our signature programs, and it is a unique opportunity to learn from renowned La Follette School faculty while networking with other participants and government leaders,” said WWIG President Audra Cohen-Plata. “We are fortunate to have this partnership and to be able to offer such an enriching and rewarding program to emerging government leaders in Wisconsin.”
A class of approximately 25 women will be selected to participate. Tuition is $400, and it is due by the first day of the seminar. This fee includes:
- 12 hours of instruction with La Follette School faculty and guest speakers
- Networking opportunities with other women in government
- Lunch and refreshments during breaks on each day of the seminar
Applications are due on November 23, 2022. Application forms and information are available on the WWIG website HERE.
“We encourage anyone interested in gaining skills to advance their government careers to apply,” Cohen-Plata said.
Leadership Seminar is funded through the annual WWIG Gala and by generous sponsors, including the Wisconsin Counties Association and the League of Wisconsin Municipalities.
