The 2019 NeW National Conference in Washington, DC is here, running tomorrow and Friday, June 20-21. This annual event offers young conservative women the chance to network with other like-minded individuals, as well as provides attendees with the opportunity to listen to a variety of specialized panels and participate in career-focused workshops.
One of the first panels, hosted by Emily Ekins, Emily Jashinksy, and Meg McDonnell, will focus on teaching attendees how to talk about their political beliefs in a persuasive and knowledgeable manner. As the American political climate has become increasingly polarized and hostile, the ability to confidently justify one’s own viewpoints has become more valuable, and this first panel will provide the necessary skills to do so.
Our second panel, featuring Ashlea Frazier, Stafford Palmieri, and Leah Whetstone, will focus on professional development. The three speakers will provide comprehensive advice on how to obtain your dream position and then experience continued success in the workforce.
Following this discussion, the NeW National Conference will feature multiple speakers during breakout sessions. These sessions will give attendees the chance to customize their agenda by choosing which speaker they would like to listen to depending on their specific career interests. For those considering the field of law, there will be a talk by Megan Brown, a partner at Wiley Rein LLP. For those interested in politics, Vivian Moeglein, Chief of Staff for Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04), will talk about her experiences on Capitol Hill. Lastly, for those who are more interested in local and/or state based public policy, a discussion will be led by Sarah Keenan, Coalitions Manager for the organization State Policy Network.
Friday afternoon, National Conference attendees will also have the opportunity to attend one of three different workshops that focus on different aspects of professional success. Angelise Schrader will concentrate on effective time management, Emma Meshell will discuss how to write convincing op-eds, and Patricia Rausch will talk about how to have the perfect job interview.
The National Conference in Washington, DC is a FREE two–day leadership conference for conservative women. The skills that attendees learn at the various panels and workshops will lead to lifelong success both inside and outside of the workforce. We hope to see you there.
