NeW at the University of Virginia hosted a dinner discussion on Thursday, October 1 with Hannah Fritz, a former White House staffer, former special assistant to the Secretary of Labor, and current public servant at the Women’s Bureau.
Thanks to COVID-19 restrictions, what was originally planned as a large speaker event was scaled back to an intimate conversation with Fitz, who gave the group of five attendees career, school, and life advice. She provided the women with tips on applying for internships, being successful in political clubs on campus, and being a woman in politics. Attendees were then able to take advantage of one-on-one time to ask her questions.
“Getting to talk to such a kind, smart, successful conservative woman who has accomplished so much was a priceless experience!” chapter member Katerina Dorian said after the event.
Fritz also commended those in attendance for their eagerness to promote conservative values on campus.
“It was a pleasure to come down and visit NeW at UVA. Even in unusual times and complicated restrictions, they are dedicated to getting the most out of their semester and their community,” she said. “It was exciting to hear their plans for school and activism and help in any way I could. I look forward to seeing what the group accomplishes this year.”
