WOMEN in GOVERNMENT LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

2017 Class of Women in Government

The Women in Government Leadership Program is a special initiative of the Governing Institute. This professional network of accomplished women in state and local government provides a community in which members share their experiences, mentor colleagues and encourage future generations of women in public service. The 24 women in the program’s inaugural cohort -- the Class of 2015 -- were elected and appointed officials from state and local governments across the country. The group includes Democrats and Republicans from 19 different states. To nominate an individual, click here.
