Meet our 2017 NeW Anniversary Dinner Keynote Speaker, Genevieve Wood. She has some great advice for young women.

What advice do you have for young conservative women today?

The same advice I give to all those in college and preparing for the next phase of life:  Success happens when opportunity meets preparedness.  You never know when the “big break” is coming, but you can work to make sure you are prepared to seize it when it does.  Don’t regret that you missed an opportunity because you weren’t prepared.

What value do you think groups like NeW add to the public discourse?

Knowing what you believe and why you believe it is foundational to being an effective advocate. NeW provides platforms and programs that encourage young women to think deeply about policy and cultural issues and introduces them to other students, leaders and organizations that can help them further develop their worldview.

What inspired you to pursue a career in conservative politics and policy?

Our family regularly watched the news together and talked about both historical and current events. During college, I pursued internships in both news and the political arena. Once I realized you could actually make a living promoting ideas, people, policies and causes you believed in, I was in.

What is your best strategy for standing up against mainstream media bias?

Having a strong message backed up by solid facts is a good start but what really drives them crazy is when you deliver that message, backed by facts, with a smile.  Be a happy warrior.
