For Women working for the U.S. Congress.

Our mission is to increase the number, rank and leadership skills of women working for the U.S. Congress. To do that, our organization plans to award grants to young women who otherwise wouldn’t be able to do a Hill internship, offer hard-skills seminars to existing female Hill staffers and host an annual event in honor of the Women’s Congressional Staff Association that will double as a fundraiser for the Foundation.

Women are well-represented in junior positions on Capitol Hill, but there’s a steep drop-off at the senior staff level. That’s the exact moment having a diverse chorus of voices, experiences and backgrounds becomes crucial. Ensuring women are in the room, at the table, where public policy decisions that impact the lives of all Americans are made makes us a better nation.
