Capitol Hill Intern Summit

The Network of enlightened Women is hosting our Capitol Hill Intern Summit on Wednesday, October 26.

The event runs from 11am-2pm and includes a free lunch. Participants will learn from two of the top women on Capitol Hill on how to advance in their careers on the Hill, advocate effectively for conservative ideas, and take on leadership positions while balancing the needs of family. We look forward to having Natalie Joyce, Deputy Chief of Staff for Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, and Parker Hamilton Poling, Partner at Harbinger Strategies, join us for this panel conversation. 

Attendees will also hear from Sarah Parshall Perry, Senior Legal Fellow at The Heritage Foundation. She will analyze this year’s biggest Supreme Court decisions and their political implications going into the midterm elections.  

Please register to reserve your spot as space is limited.

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

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