WWIG is thrilled to announce that we are now accepting applications for our annual leadership seminar, taking place from May 9th to to May 17th.

Founded in 1987, Wisconsin Women in Government (“WWIG”) is a bipartisan volunteer organization that recognizes and supports women who choose to pursue a career in government by providing scholarships as well as learning, mentoring, and networking opportunities. WWIG also promotes mentoring by bringing together women from different backgrounds to share experiences and to foster professional networks.

Since 2001, WWIG has partnered with the University of Wisconsin: Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs to provide Leadership Seminars for women who work at the local state or federal level of government or who interact with the government through private-sector employment. The seminars, which include more than 20 hours of training, are led by University of Wisconsin: Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs, Professor Susan Yackee and Professor Emeritus Dennis Dresang.
