NEW Leadership Idaho

National Education for Women’s Leadership Idaho (NEW) is an exciting hands-on leadership program designed to inspire young women to become leaders in their communities.

College women from across Idaho are invited to spend a week in Boise learning about the important role that politics plays in their lives, studying leadership skills applicable in both public and private sector positions, addressing diversity matters and mingling with other students dedicated to making a difference in their communities. Students will have the unique opportunity to interact with and learn from many of Idaho’s local and state elected officials, as well as a wide variety of community and private sector leaders.

NEW Leadership is a national bi-partisan program developed by the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP).  The program was designed to address the under-representation of women in American politics. Participants represent a wide range of socioeconomic, ethnic, racial and educational backgrounds, and academic majors.
