Alene Moris National Education for Women’s Leadership

The deadline has passed for the 2016 Alene Moris NEW Leadership Institute.

The Alene Moris National Education for Women’s (NEW) Leadership Institute is an intensive six-day program open to undergraduate and graduate women attending two-year or four-year institutions in the state or to those who are enrolled out-of-state with residency in Washington.

The purpose of this program is to increase women’s representation in leadership positions in the non-profit, private, and political sectors. Program curriculum covers a variety of important topics, including training on public speaking, policy analysis, negotiation, diversity management, running for political office, and fundraising. Participants in this Institute are connected with prominent women leaders in Washington and are invited to join an exciting network of current and future leaders.

The Alene Moris NEW Leadership Institute is part of a network of similar programs that are held in 23 states across the country. The program was started by the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University in 1991.

The 2016 Institute will take place on June 13-18, 2016 on the University of Washington – Seattle campus.
