Sen. Carrie Ruud, R-Breezy Point, recently hosted the National Foundation for Women Legislators "Spring Symposium for Women Policy Makers" in Eau Claire, Wis., along with Wisconsin State Director Rep. Kathy Bernier.

Ruud spoke about the opportunities NFWL has to offer legislators. Keynote speakers included Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch; President of Wisconsin Women's Health Foundation, former first lady Sue Ann Thompson; and Wisconsin Public Defender Kelli Thompson.

"This was a fantastic opportunity to introduce Wisconsin's female legislators to the benefits of the National Foundation for Women Legislators," said Ruud in a news release. "Along with introducing NFWL to legislators we were able to discuss important public policy issues we're all working on as legislators."

Since 1938, NFWL has served as a forum for elected women from across the country to be empowered through information and experience. As the oldest organization for elected women in America and the only one that includes women on the city, county and state levels, it encourages members to take leadership roles and form connections across the aisle.

The NFWL provides strategic resources to elected women leaders for leadership development and effective governance through conferences, seminars, educational materials, professional and personal relationships, and networking. NFWL is a nonpartisan 501c3, educational foundation.
