Introducing the Civic Leadership Engagement Roadmap

Do you want to use your voice, time and talent to make meaningful change in your community? Are you motivated to build on your civic knowledge base? Are you prepared to grow as an impactful leader? The Policy Circle’s Civic Leadership Engagement Program might be for you!


Women Engage. Women Lead. Women Change the Conversation.

Over the past 5 years, The Policy Circle has focused on creating the ideal environment for women to become informed and inspired on economic public policy via roundtable discussions. To meet demand and encourage local, state and national leadership talent to engage in public service, we have launched the Civic Leadership Engagement Roadmap (CLER) program to move more women from civic knowledge to civic engagement.

Through our expertly created curriculum, participants will take specific actions that fundamentally change policy conversations and outcomes and ensure more women hold leadership roles in their communities and in public office.  The curriculum facilitates an understanding of the American founding and the principles that live on today. Participants will:

  • Develop leadership capacity
  • Build the confidence to engage
  • Engage with your community and drive action
  • Build on your civic knowledge base
  • Step out of your comfort zone through action, so be prepared!

CLER will develop and build the confidence in women to step forward to lead and influence for the betterment of their community, state and country. The program will equip, incentivize and challenge participants to engage within their Circles and communities. To meet the demands of our diverse and unique Policy Circle members, our self-directed program will include experiential learning, volunteering, leadership development and various forms of activism that allows participants to pursue a pathway that is synergistic with their ultimate goals, while being mindful of their current season in life.

The Beta class of CLER has begun its curriculum with monthly virtual video conference meetings combined with world-class training and the opportunity to connect with other women leaders and special guests from across the country. The class will graduate later this fall. 


We are currently taking applications for the Spring 2021 class – explore the program, requirements and apply or nominate someone today!
