POLITICAL LEADERS
OF TOMORROW

The PLOT program increased my courage, strength, and education. It was the perfect stepping stone in my political career. I know that I’ll always have connections and support within Women Winning.

2019 PLOT Participant

Being in an environment fiercely devoted to uplifting and electing pro-choice women allowed me to see that I, myself, could run for office someday.

ABOUT

The Women Winning Political Leaders of Tomorrow (PLOT) Training Program is designed to help you acquire the tools and connections needed to be a political leader in Minnesota. PLOT serves as an entry point for energized, pro-choice Minnesotans who are interested in a career in politics, especially those who have not yet volunteered or worked on a campaign.

PLOT invests in the next generation of political strategists, volunteers, and candidates in Minnesota through education and training. The Women Winning team supports and develops PLOT program participants throughout the summer by providing:

  • In-depth training in campaign communication, fundraising, fieldwork, and strategy
  • Professional development and networking opportunities
  • Personalized check-ins and problem-solving coaching

Following the first training session, Women Winning works closely with participants as they continue to develop their skills and gain experience. Women Winning helps participants make connections to pro-choice women candidates running for office in Minnesota, and those campaigns actively help participants develop their skills 10-12 hours per week. This interactive, experiential learning component of the PLOT program allows participants to put the education, training, and coaching they receive into action and gain hands-on campaign experience.

Alumni of the PLOT program are in high demand as participants have gone on to work on presidential campaigns, in congressional offices and the state legislature, and at top lobbying firms. Additionally, PLOT participants have gone on to run for office, and win!

What PLOT Participants are saying

As a person of color and a woman, this organization made me feel valued and that my narrative is valid. We need more organizations like Women Winning where women are being advocated for and their voices are being heard.

2018 PLOT Participant

Women Winning has given me the opportunity to be involved in politics in a way I wouldn’t have had the chance to otherwise. Coming from rural MN, the opportunities are limited, so I was grateful for the chance to expand my knowledge and experience.
