Support the Next Generation of Women Leaders

NFWL Chair Montana State Representative Kimberly Dudik is inviting all elected women to join her in supporting the Center for American Women in Politics’ NEW Leadership Program.

CAWP’s NEW Leadership program was designed to educate and inspire the next generation of women leaders through a six-day residential program. The program is for young women in college. Throughout the week, young women participants have the opportunity to meet successful women leaders. By the end of the week, attendees are inspired to become more involved in the political process. Survey results show that program participants do become more engaged in politics after attending the CAWP NEW Leadership Program.

Nominate Elected Women for International Trips

Do you know an elected woman who is a rising leader between the ages of 25 and 40? The American Council for Young Political Leaders is looking for women to join their international exchange trips.

Keeping up with NFWL

Red Sand Project

In April, NFWL Chair Representative Kimberly Dudik asked our members to honor Child Abuse Prevention and Sexual Assault Awareness Month by participating in the Red Sand Project. Here’s a special shout out to Senator Carol Blood (Nebraska) and Mayor Lorraine Hatcher (Riverside, New Jersey) for participating in the project and sharing with us on social media!

Celebrating Earth Day with Verizon

On April 23, NFWL attended an event at Verizon’s Technology and Policy Center. In celebration of Earth Day, the panel focused on how 5G networks of the future will promote sustainability, while also discussing the role of smart cities in achieving this goal.

National Week of Conversation

NFWL partnered with the Bridge Alliance during the National Week of Conversation (April 20-28). We asked our elected women members to join in civility events. At NFWL’s Board Meeting on April 28, we even led our Board of Directors in one of the week’s conversations! Thanks to all those who participated and shared your events with us on social media.
