Making Change: Messaging your Research for Policy Audiences

Thursday, July 23 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Virtual Event

Having a strong message—and being able to convey it—is essential to effective policy communications. This session from the Grand Challenges for Social Work will guide participants in developing policy messages from their research. It will also include the basics of identifying audiences, choosing the right vehicles to carry their message and preparing various policy tools, particularly policy briefs and 1-page leave-behinds. This program is offered in partnership with the Grand Challenges for Social Work initiative.
