Professional Women in Advocacy Conference
Women in Government Relations (WGR) presents:
"Professional Women in Advocacy Conference"
The Professional Women in Advocacy Conference is a national conference that provides professional development and leadership training to women in all areas of advocacy including federal, state and local government relations, public affairs, community relations, public policy, legislation, Congressional relations, community activism, political engagement and campaigns. Attendees hear from successful lobbyists and communicators, elected officials, professional staff, industry experts, and public policy specialists on a wide variety of how-to topics relevant to legislative and regulatory advocacy.
This year the conference will be held virtually over three days, November 9-11. This allows attendees to participate from the comfort of their own environment and as their schedule allows.
An Overview of the Professional Women in Advocacy Conference
What to Expect
When women have a seat at the public policy table, everyone benefits. In order to get and keep our seat, we must be equipped to competently and confidently represent our viewpoint. The goal of this conference is to provide women in advocacy the information, tools and contacts they need to be successful representatives for their organization or cause. We achieve this by hosting substantive policy discussions, teaching the latest methods and strategies in advocacy and filling the room with network contacts that help attendees do their job at the highest possible level.
What You Will Get
Three conference tracks tailored to what you need to know. Choose a track or mix and match! Communications: Topics to enhance the advocate’s ability to communicate to external & and internal channels, partnerships, public affairs, coalitions, stakeholder and member engagement. Local, State and Federal Government Relations: Includes topics related to lobbying, government relations and public policy at all levels of government. PAC and Grassroots: Covers topics related to the elections, voting, political parties, political engagement and grassroots organizing. Professional Development and Coaching is not a separate track this year. Instead these sessions to help attendees be their best both personally and professionally will be interspersed throughout the agenda.
Who You Will Meet
Professionals working in any aspect of advocacy including federal, state or local government relations, public relations, public affairs, community activism, coalitions, public policy, campaigns, PAC and grassroots, politics, legislation, and communications.
