Women’s Policy Institute | Women’s Foundation of California

Women’s Policy Institute (WPI) amplifies the voices of women and trans folks throughout the state, training them to be policy advocates and champions for gender justice. WPI includes two year-long programs in which community-based leaders of diverse backgrounds and experiences are paired with mentors and work in teams to advocate for and implement important policy projects at the state and at the county levels.
