Women In Government (WIG) hosts a wide range of events to educate and inform state legislators on critical public policy topics facing their state. From regional and national conferences to state-based activities such as policy roundtables, WIG offers dynamic opportunities to cultivate relationships among all political parties. Many events offer Travel Scholarships for women state legislators to provide policymakers in all states the opportunity to participate in our events.
Women In Government’s number one priority is everyone’s health and safety, and therefore we are closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 or the coronavirus.
At this writing, WIG fully anticipates conducting vibrant and informative conferences in Washington, DC June 18 – 20, 2020 and Orlando, FL November 19 – 21, 2020. If the situation merits any change in WIG’s scheduled events, we will disseminate the decision promptly and widely. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to observe prevention measures.
“Don’t panic, just prepare” is the message that is being disseminated to the public. Timothy Brewer, a professor of epidemiology and medicine at UCLA’s Fielding School of Public Health and its David Geffen School of Medicine states “Don’t panic, there’s no value in panicking or telling people to be afraid. Don’t let fear and emotion drive the response to this virus. That can be extremely difficult because it is new, and we’re still learning about it, but don’t allow fear of what we don’t know about the virus to overwhelm what we do know.”
