Thinking about pursuing a career in public office? Want to know what life is like on the campaign trail and beyond? U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, representing Michigan's 14th district, will introduce a panel of women leaders who have served in elected office in Michigan. Panelists will share their experiences and answer audience questions about what drove them to pursue a career in public office, how they ran successful campaigns, and what life looks like as an elected official.
