Learning Center Experience
By Dr. Karla Drenner, College of Social and Behavioral Sciences
Dr. Karla Drenner is a professor at Kaplan University and teaches undergraduate and graduate public administration courses. She also has served as a state representative in Georgia for 14 years, owns her own environmental and safety consulting firm, authored a book, and earned five college degrees.
The Center for Public Service talked with Dr. Drenner about her career and her numerous accomplishments, to get some advice for our Kaplan University students who are interested in entering public service. We asked Dr. Drenner if she could provide advice for women interested in entering public service. Dr. Drenner offered the following six tips for women who want to enter public service that she wishes someone had given her before she started on her path.
1. You don't need to be asked or invited into the political process.
2. Women are just as qualified, if not more qualified, than our male counterparts.
3. If you lose, try again.
4. Don't pigeonhole yourself into just working on women's issues. Stretch yourself and include broader issues, such as economic development, energy, or environmental policy.
5. Don't take it personally. Much more so than men, women tend to be more sensitive. You need to learn how to play the game, but you can learn to play by your own rules.
6. You really can have it all. You can have a rewarding job, a great career in public service, and a family as well. You may have to learn how to manage your time and prioritize, but you can do it!
