About the Public Leadership Education Network:

The PLEN is the only national organization with the sole focus of preparing college women for leadership in the public policy arena. PLEN is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization based in Washington, D.C. Through introducing college women to role models, career paths, and skills trainings before they enter the workforce, PLEN's mission is to increase the number of women in top leadership positions influencing all aspects of the public policy process. Since its founding, PLEN has introduced thousands of young women to the Nation's Capital and the work of public policy. They experience first-hand how public policy is shaped and implemented at the national level. They are better prepared to become the next generation of public policy decision makers.

Students meet with and learn from female leaders making and influencing public policy at the highest levels in Congress, the courts, federal agencies, the private sector, policy research and advocacy organizations, and the media. These women leaders serve as teachers as well as mentors. Students and schools report this experience is invaluable. Women who have participated in PLEN programs have gone on to be leaders in congressional offices, federal agencies, nonprofits, and advocacy organizations. Currently, 53 percent of our students are women of color or from groups under-represented in the policy arena. Learn more: .
