Careers

Women Legislators are more harshly criticized and penalized for public policy failures than their male counterparts.

Drake is looking for a few good women to help bring female political thought leadership to the forefront of public discourse, nationwide. We understand the importance of not only having more women at the decision-making table, but also giving them the opportunity to lead the discussion. Are you ready to collaborate with us?

“Empowering Women Legislators Beyond Term Limits, Across the Aisle, and Over State Lines.”

The Drake Institute of Research and Policy is a newly established, research and policy development organization based in Washington, DC. Our mission is to facilitate collaborative research and policymaking at the local, regional, and national levels to promote the advancement of women in politics and society.
