Professional Women in Advocacy Conference

At the Professional Women in Advocacy Conference (PWIA) we believe that when women are involved at the highest levels of policy making, everyone benefits. Therefore, it is imperative to give women advocates the tools and information they need to competently and confidently represent their organization or cause. This conference strives to connect women in our field and promote excellence in their work. Participants will leave educated, inspired, and carrying a tool kit for achieving immediate results.  To learn more about the founders, please visit: http://womeninadvocacy.com/about-the-organizers/
