Casting a NeW Net

June 20, 2008 | NeW Staff

There is something powerful in the idea and practice of NETWORKING. Establishing relationships, making connections, and strengthening forces with others can help in any avenue of your life.  In fact, it’s actually one of my favorite things to do.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the potential that building a network can have when I attended the Conservative Women’s Network Luncheon hosted by the Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute and held at The Heritage Foundation. Once a month, conservative women from all over the DC area gather to listen to a speaker on a relevant topic, discuss important issues, and connect with one another. It was a really great experience for me and gave me a vision of how effective NeW can really be.

Many of these women work for conservative organizations and strive to strengthen the broader conservative movement. By working together, they achieve a stronger coalition. We are doing that with NeW. Women from all over college campuses are igniting conservative initiatives on their campuses, and they are making waves.  But alone, these groups would not be the force that they have become. Together, much as the women from different organizations gathered with each other at this luncheon, we can learn from each other how best to effect change on our campuses. I think women have a unique opportunity to offer new solutions and encourage a different mentality on our campuses.  As female students, we are often misrepresented by the feminist agenda. We have an opportunity to come together and to work against these forces. 

Recognize the importance of your beliefs in affecting the future of our nation. Educate yourselves on these values. And most importantly, realize that building a force of activists is much stronger than working alone.  A Network IS powerful, and its intertwined units would fail if acting alone.  Together, a Network can and WILL make a difference.
