When women have a seat at the public policy table, everyone benefits.
We are excited to announce our theme for the 2017 PWIA Conference: "Women Rock!"
PWIA turns 5 years old this year and we are celebrating with a jam packed agenda of personal and professional development programming especially geared towards women. Our tracks will have something for both junior and senior level practitioners.
Advocacy & Outreach: tips and techniques to immediately improve your advocacy effectiveness. Communications and public affairs have been folded into this track.
State & Fed Govt Relations: traditional shoe leather lobbying meets the next generation in Washington and around the country.
Professional Development: enhance your personal and professional skills and performance.

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.
