POLITICAL LEADERS
OF TOMORROW

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 participants throughout the program 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 and 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!

Become a Political Leader of Tomorrow!

Applications for the 2021 PLOT Program are due on Friday, April 30, 2021. 

Participant Requirements 

• Commitment to Women Winning’s mission to recruit, train, and elect pro-choice women
• Strong work ethic and interest in the political process and gaining campaign/electoral experience
Active engagement with the Women Winning team, specifically the PLOT Coordinators, for ongoing coaching and development from June through August
Mandatory attendance at three training sessions throughout the summer (June 4th, July 13th, August 17th).

Resources

Women Winning is committed to investing in the education of pro-choice political leaders. We offer a financial stipend of $400 for time spent in educational programming and coaching with Women Winning over the course of the summer (June, July, and August). This equates to $15/hour and aligns with our values to pay a living wage. Transportation resources are also available for participants traveling from Greater Minnesota.

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.

2018 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.
