Tag Archives: Women Leadering Policy
As one of those students who is also working full-time (you can tell by the slightly crazed look in our eyes), I haven’t been able to take advantage of as many outside-the-classroom opportunities as I would like, which other students give such wonderful snapshots of on this blog: domestic and international internships, alternative spring breaks, research, and an overwhelming amount of intellectually and creatively stimulating lectures and events. There is one thing that I have managed to squeeze in, though, and I am so grateful that I have: student organizations.
Last night, I wasn’t working on my Practicum project. I wasn’t reading the latest peer-reviewed journal article about the Achievement Gap. And I definitely wasn’t downloading Census data for a multivariate statistical regression.
Instead, I was at the Perch in downtown Los Angeles with some of the incredible women of SPPD. Our organization, Women Leading Policy, Planning, and Development (quite a name, I know), was hosting Ladies’ Night. This was a chance for us to relax and have fun, talking with one another about things beyond benefit-cost analysis or stakeholder matrices.
