When women have a seat at the public policy table, everyone benefits.
Dear Prospective Sponsor,
The statement above continues to be the mantra of the Professional Women in Advocacy Conference. Whether advocating before Congress, in our communities or among specific constituencies, women have a necessary perspective to add to the conversation. In order for women advocates to be effective in representing their organization or cause, we must prepare them with the latest information, tools and know-how. This conference will accomplish those goals and you can help.
By sponsoring the 2017 Professional Women in Advocacy Conference you are contributing to the professional development of women who impact the public policy debate but there are also plenty of additional business reasons for supporting the event.
Business development: raise awareness for your product or firm among 300 highly qualified participants, many of whom are new prospects from outside the beltway;
Thought leadership: speaking roles on panels position you as an expert in your field;
Networking: meet attendees and develop relationships with prospective clients and customers;
Programming: participants from your organization will also benefit from the sessions.
The 2017 Professional Women in Advocacy Conference is the only conference of its kind, and has grown bigger and more exciting every year. In 2013 we welcomed 150 participants from all over the U.S. and in 2014 we doubled that number. This year is our 5th Anniversary and we are expecting our biggest crowd ever. We are confident this conference has hit on the perfect formula of high level and relevant speakers, a dynamic agenda, a nurturing learning environment for participants, and first class networking opportunities.
This will be the most talked about event in our industry and we want YOU to be our partner. So please call me today at 202-744-6077 for more information.
We hope to see you in November!
Best Regards, LeeAnn M. Petersen CEO

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.
