Who Should Attend? Current public service employees and students interested in developing their leadership skills or moving into positions of greater responsibility. This conference is for women in public service who have a strong interest in achievement, the drive to advance their careers, and an interest in partnering with others to promote women's leadership.
The conference prefers the participation of a diverse group of professional women, including those who are:
~ new to their organization;
~ actively seeking to develop their careers in public service; and
~ in senior level positions in their organizations continuing to serve, fully engaged in the future leadership challenges in state government.
There is also an opportunity for students to attend the conference. Full-time students who are not yet gainfully employed in a public service field and seeking a career in government are encouraged to attend.
