Episode 28: Lucy Gettman - Women In Government

Today’s guest is Lucy Gettman, Executive Director of Women in Government - a nonpartisan organization of women state legislators.

Women in Government provides leadership opportunities, networking, expert forums, and educational resources to current legislators, and future leaders. Their work is more important than ever - over 3000 women ran for office in 2018. Women in Government also offers internships throughout the year - see their website for more details.

In addition to her position at Women in Government, Lucy is an adjunct professor at American University.


Lucy started her political career in Ohio; she earned two degrees from Ohio State University (go Buckeyes!), worked in the Ohio State Capitol, and at the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.  

Later in her career, she was a Congressional Fellow in Washington D.C., while simultaneously earning her graduate certificate at American University and keeping her full time job - in Ohio! She is incredibly hardworking.
