Event description

Description

For four decades, PLEN has been preparing women for public policy leadership. Whether this means opening up their eyes to possible careers, training them to negotiate their first salary, or helping them build the networks and confidence to get ahead, PLEN has been there to help young women forge their own path as leaders. Our year-long celebration will highlight PLEN’s rich history within the women’s movements for equality, showcase prominent alumnae, and look back at the impact we’ve made while continuing to break down barriers for future women leaders. Learn more about PLEN's 40th Anniversary.
