Ready for Women: Fellowship
Councilwoman Nury Martinez has developed a summer fellowship program that will inspire and develop the next generation of female political leaders. We will train young women to carry their existing leadership skills into the public sector and to public office. Fellows will be introduced to the importance of leadership and develop a foundation in public policy with hands-on experience in local government, spending four days each week (Monday-Thursday) learning all facets of public policy. On Fridays, Fellows will participate in leadership seminars where they will be given the opportunity to hear from women in leadership, as well as discuss policy issues facing local government and how to propose effective solutions.
