KEYNOTE SPEAKER 
 
WWIG is thrilled to announce that our keynote 
 speaker will be former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power. 
 
Samantha Power served from 2009 to 2013 on the National Security Council as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights on the National Security Council, before becoming the 28th U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations from 2013 to 2017.
 
Her foreign policy work has been well-known and widely honored. A former journalist, Power won a Pulitzer Prize in 2003 for her book, A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide. In 2016, she was listed as the 41st most powerful woman in the world by Forbes.

WWIG is a nonprofit organization best known for our work to provide scholarships to women hoping to pursue a career in public service. Each year, WWIG awards scholarships to young women to attend Badger Girls State and to women pursuing government-related undergraduate and post-graduate study at any Wisconsin institution of higher education. We are proud to also support women throughout their professional lives by working in cooperation with the La Follette School of Public Affairs at UW-Madison to offer the “Women in Government Graduate Seminar.”
 
Our annual gala is the greatest contributor to these invaluable programs, and we’re hoping that 2018 will be our best year yet! We would like to thank all of our supporters for joining WWIG this and every year as we work to support women in government.
