Women in Public Service: Serving Together…Now More Than Ever

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
–Helen Keller

The world has changed immeasurably since we last were together in person—so much that it’s hard to know what connection looks like in these new circumstances. One thing is certain: We need each other now more than ever, particularly as many of us now work from home, where it's easy to feel isolated.

Join us for a chance to reconnect, rejuvenate, and refresh as we examine the effects of the last two years and determine how to move forward, more invigorated and united in our support for each other than ever. As we navigate how to serve the public with changing resources, competition for labor, and global uncertainty, we are each others' greatest allies.

Women in Public Service annual awards

As part of the launch of the Women in Public Service (WIPS) Conference in 2012, Hamline committed to bringing together women from across the public sector to share their experiences and support and develop one another’s strengths as they lead and realize their full potential in public service. Each year, as part of this commitment, Hamline recognizes public service trailblazers and up-and-coming leaders at our annual Women in Public Service Conference.

WIPS Seminar series

In response to overwhelming demand and interest in our annual Women in Public Service (WIPS) conference and requests for additional related professional development opportunities throughout the year, we are pleased to also offer a seminar series.
