Women In Government Travel Scholarships offer unique opportunities for women state legislators to gather in a nonpartisan environment and examine policy topics from a variety of perspectives. WIG conferences allow poliicymakers to:
- Gain insight into pressing issues in a conference-style setting followed by robust dialogue with the presenters;
- Delve deep into single topics with facilitated breakout sessions;
- Upgrade your professional toolbox with WIG’s ongoing Professional Development Series;
- Present recent legislative successes with peers during Open Mic Bill Share meals;
- Record a professional Public Service Announcement on a selected policy topic that will be placed in your local market;
- Become a mentor to a student interested in running for public office through our Future Women In Government program or draw from the hard-learned wisdom of women who have served office as we grow our Former Women In Government program; and
- Connect in person with Women In Government staff to bring WIG to your state.
