Pamela O’Leary, Executive Director, Public Leadership Education Network (PLEN)
Pamela O’Leary is Director of Public Leadership Education Network (PLEN). PLEN is the only national organization whose sole focus is preparing college women for leadership in the public policy arena. Through exposing college women to role models and skill trainings before they enter the workforce, PLEN seeks to increase the number of women in top leadership positions influencing all aspects of the public policy process. Founded in 1978, PLEN has served thousands of college women, of which more than one-third are women of color or from other populations historically under-represented in public policy leadership.
