In celebration of our 40th Anniversary, Public Leadership Education Network (PLEN)is highlighting the impact we’ve made as we continue to break down barriers for future women policy leaders. The 40th Anniversary Leadership Connection series will bring our current and future leaders together in one room to discuss our country’s most pressing policy issues. Through these discussions, we’ll look back at the progress that we have made and look forward to the work that still needs to be done.
With the wave of diverse women elected to the House and Senate, we can't help but wonder: what about the women transforming Capitol Hill behind the scenes? In the third panel of the Leadership Connection Series, we’ll highlight the women staffers running Capitol Hill without running for office. They’ll discuss the history of diversity on Capitol Hill and how the recent and future elections can transform diversity in leadership and all levels of Capitol Hill.
The panel discussion will start at 4:30 and conclude at 6:00 pm, followed by a networking reception with light fare.
We have designed this event to fully comply with US Senate Rule 35.1(d)(1), US House Ethics Manual pp. 41-47, and the U.S. Executive Branch Gift Rules regarding the “widely attended event” exception to the gift rules.
