The Women’s Policy Institute is a nine (9) month program designed to train women to be strong policy advocates at the state and local level. The program teaches public policy skills to grassroots leaders, increases their participation in policy formation and implementation and prepares them to lead ongoing advocacy and policy work. Each cohort chooses a policy initiative that they will champion throughout the program. Recent examples include support of the Temporary Caregiver Insurance bill and repealing the “Tampon Tax.”
WFRI chooses participants who demonstrate the potential to lead on issues of gender equity. Each participant must commit to the integral aspects of the program including research, contributing to the development of a bill and advocacy of the issues supporting the bill at the State House.
The training is designed to inform participants about the gender wage and wealth gaps, understand how these gaps affect personal economic security and life goals, gain confidence in their ability to negotiate through facilitated discussion and role-play skills they will use for the rest of their working lives.
