If we don’t speak up for ourselves and our concerns, who will? During this 60 minute live webinar, advocacy experts will share best practices for how you can become an AWIS ambassador who drives systemic change initiatives. This presentation, the first in our series devoted on advocacy, will provide a description of the many ways AWIS members can engage in advocacy.  Initial discussions will focus on getting involved locally in government or civic groups and influencing important stakeholders and decision-makers – like medical school and university leaders, as well as members of Congress. Each participant will then follow up with advice on ways women can have impact on policy and describe what kind of advocacy works best. Attendees will then have the opportunity to interact with the panelists by asking questions via a chat-box feature.  

Ideal Audience: Any AWIS member interested in learning more about advocacy.

Learning Objective(s):
Participants of this webinar will come away with and understanding of the:
various ways one can engage in advocacy
differences between local, state, and federal advocacy and what works best
impact one can have on policy
