Description

PWIA NYC Workshop

Since 2013 Professional Women in Advocacy has been bringing professional development programming to women working in government relations, public affairs, advocacy, political and civic engagement and activism. In the last two years we have hosted two regional events in Albany and by popular demand we will host our next event (a workshop) in NYC this summer. We hope to see you there!
