Women in International Public Affairs (MPA) website launch

February 11, 2010

In October of 2009, I created a Women in International Public Affairs (WIPA) to address issues unique to women pursuing a international public affairs career.  We kicked off the formation of the group with a coffee breakfast.  15 MPA students attended to finalize the mission statement and discuss future initiatives.  The WIPA mission statement was confirmed as,

By providing opportunities for open exchange among current Masters of Public Affairs (MPA) students and MPA alumni, WIPA seeks to raise awareness about the challenges and rewards unique to women working in international public affairs.  As future public policy leaders, members of WIPA work to foster a strong network of alliances among current members, alumni, similar programs in the GPPN and community partners.

The activities of WIPA seek to support this mission statement through various activities that help women to develop professionally and prepare for a future international and/or public affairs based career.

This semester WIPA is busy preparing for Judith Baroody, Minister Counselor of Public Affairs at the US Embassy in Paris, who will speak to the MPA on March 26th.  Ms. Baroody exemplifies the core of WIPA and we are honored that she will be speaking next month.
