Do you ever find yourself thinking: “Should I go to grad school?" "Which degree is right for me?" "What kind of job prospects will I have?" "How will I afford it?" "What's the difference between an MPP, an MPA, and an MBA anyway?" "What about a Ph.D.?" "Or maybe I should pursue a JD?" "Help!” Sound familiar?

Then join the Women in Law, Women in Entrepreneurship, Government, and Lobbying and Advocacy Networks for Show Me the Way, a panel on forging your path to grad school in law, government, lobbying, and entrepreneurship. Our panelists, five professional women with advanced degrees in Public Administration, Business, Human Sciences, and Law, will share how they chose their particular program, as well as give tips and tricks for navigating various degree programs and planning your career.

Panelists Include:

Nancy Leeds, National Political Director, and Clean Water Action

Dr. Talaya Waller, Personal Branding Consultant, Waller & Company

Kimberly Jones, Vice President - Public Policy, Council for Opportunity in Education

Dr. Natalie Houghtby-Haddon, Associate Director at George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership
