Professional Women in Advocacy welcomes you to participate in a one-day workshop featuring professional development programming for women working in government relations, advocacy, public affairs, activism and engagement. PWIA is not a membership organization so anyone may attend our events. We have a fantastic agenda lined up and would love for you to join us!

We have a great agenda for this year’s workshop! Our theme this year is Breakthrough Advocacy so we will be talking about trends and technologies that are changing our industry. A subtheme of the workshop is how increased youth and diversity in the civic arena is changing how we advocate for our cause, organization or industry.
