Women in Politics and Public Policy, Graduate Certificate
Make a change. Make a difference.
Join a dynamic group of women from around Massachusetts, the nation, and the world in a challenging and exciting learning environment designed for women who want to make a change—and to make a difference.
Hear Massachusetts State Representative Denise Garlick speak about her journey to political leadership. Representative Garlick participated on an interactive panel on women’s political leadership held in November for both students in the Women in Politics and Public Policy graduate certificate program and the broader community. The event was part of the center’s Leading Women Speaker and Film Series.
The program prepares women to serve at all levels of government, take on leadership roles in nonprofit organizations, hold elected office, and pursue advanced degrees, most frequently in law and public policy.
