WWIG is thrilled to announce that it is now accepting applications for its annual leadership seminar, taking place on February 25 and March 4, 2022.

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 Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison 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 training and networking opportunities, are led by Professor Susan Yackee and Professor Emeritus Dennis Dresang of the Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs.
