The Vanderbilt Project on Unity & American Democracy will host a virtual event, “Hill Staffers Who Make Congress Go Round,” Thursday, Sept. 30 at 12:30 p.m. CT. In keeping with its mission to elevate facts and reasoned discourse into our national conversation, the Project will highlight the often unseen, but important work, of Capitol Hill staff members. During the event, a panel of bipartisan Congressional staffers will discuss how they’ve worked across the aisle to get things done; the differences between working in the House vs. Senate and personal vs. committee office; how to land a job on the Hill and how to make the most of it.  

This event is virtual and open to the public.
