About

The Women Winning Political Leaders of Tomorrow (PLOT) Training Program is designed to help you acquire the tools and connections needed to be a political leader in Minnesota. PLOT serves as an entry point for energized, pro-choice Minnesotans who are interested in a career in politics, especially those who have not yet volunteered or worked on a campaign.

PLOT invests in the next generation of political strategists, volunteers, and candidates in Minnesota through education and training. The Women Winning team supports and develops PLOT participants throughout the program by providing:

  • In-depth training in campaign communication, fundraising, fieldwork, and strategy
  • Professional development and networking opportunities
  • Personalized check-ins and problem-solving coaching

Following the first training session, Women Winning works closely with participants as they continue to develop their skills and gain experience. Women Winning helps participants make connections to pro-choice women candidates running for office in Minnesota, and those campaigns actively help participants develop their skills 10-12 hours per week. This interactive, experiential learning component of the PLOT program allows participants to put the education, training, and coaching they receive into action and gain hands-on campaign experience.

Alumni of the PLOT program are in high demand and participants have gone on to work on presidential campaigns, in congressional offices and the state legislature, and at top lobbying firms. Additionally, PLOT participants have gone on to run for office, and win!
