The Women's Policy Institute (WPI) is designed to increase the number of women leaders in our state who are actively involved in crafting public policies on behalf of women and girls. The Women's Policy Institute is open to women in all sectors. Alumnae include retired professionals, recent college graduates, urban planners, small business owners, nonprofit leaders, legislators, and even a talk show host. If you are passionate about systems change through policy and would welcome the opportunity to gain new skills, then the Women's Fund of Rhode Island encourages you to apply for our next class.
If you are interested in learning more about the Women's Policy Institute before you apply, please attend an informational session on August 1 from 8:30am to 9:30am. Our program facilitator and alumni will be available to answer questions you may have about the program.
