Capitol Hill Intern Summit

The Network of enlightened Women is proud to host our annual Capitol Hill Intern Summit on Wednesday, October 11, 2023. The program will run from 11am-2pm at Capitol Hill Club. 

This year, attendees will hear from speaker, Cherise Trump, Executive Director of Speech First, for a session titled, “Free Speech on Campus During International Crisis,” as well as Rachel Bovard, Executive Director of the Senate Republican Steering Committee, for a session titled, “Five Things to do in Your 20s for the Career You Want in Your 30s.”

This FREE event is open to female interns, Capitol Hill staffers, and students in the Washington, DC area. Lunch is also be provided for all attendees. 

At this event attendees also learn about the NeW community. NeW is the nation’s premier organization for conservative university women. NeW cultivates a community of conservative women and expands intellectual diversity on college campuses and in communities through women’s leadership organizations. NeW isn’t just for college women—we have a very active DC Professional Network chapter as well.

Interns have the ability to work in the morning and attend this event over lunch before returning for the last couple hours of the day.
