Women Making a Difference in Public Policy: A Hands-on Seminar for College Women
January 15-17, 2004 – St. Paul, MN

Sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Minnesota Education Fund as part of the Leaders of Today and Tomorrow (LOTT) program, this seminar aims to show participants how to have a voice in decisions that impact their lives. Seminar speakers are women leaders representing the legislature, courts, state agencies, media outlets, and interest groups. Students learn how current public policy affects women and how they themselves can influence policy through panel presentations and discussions, skill-building workshops, mentorship opportunities, and networking. Seminar locations include the Minnesota State Capitol complex and the Holiday Inn East in St. Paul. The program fee of $225 includes all meals, activities, transportation between sessions, and a student membership in the League of Women Voters of Minnesota. Hotel accommodations are an additional fee. Several schools offer scholarships to attend LOTT, and limited scholarships are available through LOTT. Registration deadline is December 27, 2003.
