Why It Matters

Through meetings and the Leadership Summit, we equip women as leaders, who pursue collaboration to solve problems. The Policy Circle increases womens’ understanding of the interdependence of (or connections between) government, business, and individuals.


“The Policy Circle has given me the opportunity to influence the women around me, drawing them to a higher sense of themselves through their own brilliance and willingness to learn.”

Judi W. – Illinois


“I knew that I would enjoy learning from other women, but I have been surprised by how quickly and broadly my world has expanded because of my introduction to these women through Policy Circle meetings.  It feels like I am part of something very important, perhaps transformational–with the potential to have a great impact on communities, particularly as more and more women find their hearts, minds, and voices emboldened by the ideas and experiences of others.”

Deborah P. – Indiana


“Being a part of the Policy Circle has both fun and enlightening! I love gathering with my girlfriends and learning actual substance and facts regarding real issues.”

Sally R. –  Texas


“Our group really enjoys all the research materials that are available to us on the Policy Circle website, especially the briefs that we have used for our meeting discussions. The briefs we have used so far have been a fantastic combination of factual and thought provoking materials. I’m discovering opinions that I didn’t even know I had.”

Mary C. – Texas


“Thanks to the exceptional resources provided through The Policy Circle website, our members are better able to articulate our belief in free-market solutions and challenge the groupthink that is seemingly so pervasive in our city and state. It’s exciting and empowering to connect with other women who believe in the freedom that comes with free-market policies—without The Policy Circle, we may never have found each other!”

Lisa H.


“I am so pleased to have discovered The Policy Circle. It provides me access to the information I need to more fully understand today’s complex issues and plugs me into a meaningful dialogue. I love the fact-based conversations in contrast to the simplistic sound bites and political drama so prevalent in other arenas. Most importantly, being a part of this organization has truly renewed my desire to engage with others in pursuit of solutions.”

Tracey B. – Illinois


“I want to say thank you for creating a platform where we can learn, feel a little more empowered and confident, reach out to others who want to share their voice, discuss sensitive topics without fear while staying fact based and spend purpose-filled time with friends (and people who will become friends)!!!!”

Stacy S. – Texas


The Policy Circle has given me hope.  I first learned of it through Angela Braly, who I’ve known and respected for nearly 20 years. After a close review of the Policy Circle I became convinced of the importance of the movement.  Not only did I know it would enrich my life personally, I could see the larger picture of how engaged women could change the course of our communities and restore the personal freedoms and concept of Liberty that is the envy of the world.”
