2019 Professional Women in Advocacy New York Workshop
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!
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.
