Women & Congress Seminars

| No Comments

Seminar Dates | Session I: March 7-11, 2011| Session II: March 14-18, 2011
Register by March 1st for this wonderful opportunity.

How does Congress really work?
What would it be like to be a Congresswoman or Senator?
Could I work on a congressional staff?

Go behind the scenes in Washington and listen to women Members of Congress, their legislative staffs, corporate lobbyists, and nonprofit advocates explain the way Congress actually works.

This seminar is unique. Nowhere else can you spend a week connecting with high level Washington women who spend every day making and influencing policy in Congress.

You'll meet decision makers, discuss pressing issues, network with women leaders and mentors, and explore career opportunities.

But it won't be just talking, you'll also experience the process:
You'll participate in a simulated congressional hearing, acting as a Member of Congress who asks questions or a witness who testifies.
You'll practice lobbying in a mock lobbying reception with veteran lobbyists who act as Senators and Congresswomen.
