Virtual Symposium: Policy Change and System Change Process, Part 1 Analysis, April 16
POLICY MAKING AND SYSTEM CHANGE PROCESS is a three-part series designed to strengthen and develop individual and organizational skills and competencies to formulate, shape, and influence public policy and/or create system change. Participants will (a) analyze the structural, social, and policy issues that have galvanized advocacy efforts and (b) explore the roles that the government, private sector, and consumers and advocacy groups play in setting policy agendas and examine the intended and unintended effects of these policies.
POLICY MAKING AND SYSTEM CHANGE PROCESS provides participants with the essential competencies and tools to create, lead, and influence system and policy change. This three-part symposium is designed for those who have a deep interest beyond their social impact work to influence policy and/or systems at the intersection of government, private, and not-for-profit sectors.
