APPLY to the Women in Public Service Project Institute
WDN would like to announce an exciting opportunity being offered by the United States’ Department of State. The “Women in Public Service Project” seeks to advance women to positions of influence in governments and civic organizations worldwide.
Wellesley College in Massachusetts will host the first Women in Public Service Project Institute for a period of two weeks from June 11-22, 2012. The pilot institute will bring together 50 emerging women leaders from across the globe between the ages of 25-45 who are already serving in different fields of public service and/or political or elected office. The institute hopes to provide a forum for shared learning and dialogue; exchange of experiences and expertise; peer-to-peer mentoring and networking; and build an important platform for cross-fertilization of knowledge and innovative leadership skills.
