    Collaborating for change in today’s political environment

    Public policy doesn't happen in a bubble. Change is often spurred by an alignment among policy makers, influencers, grassroots groups and thought-leaders that together shape priorities that translate to action. This session explores how non-profit leaders and organizations can successfully build relationships and alliances that can help move your public policy goals forward.

    This session will focus on:

    • How to build relationships with those in power
    • What you should consider when framing issues
    • Strategies for working with those outside your usual circle
    • Building coalitions with likely and unlikely allies
