Join Philanthropy Northwest for the third year of our virtual workshop series on policy advocacy. This four-part series is designed for foundation staff and trustees who want to build their knowledge and capacity to engage in advocacy on policy issues.
The first two sessions will ground the conversation in appropriate ways that philanthropy can engage in policy advocacy by reviewing laws and sharing strategies. The last two sessions are practical implementations and deeper dives on how policy advocacy has strengthened initiatives and furthered issues in supporting and sustaining a more equitable democracy for our communities.
In previous years, Advocacy in Action was a great introductory series for philanthropic organizations or staff with limited experience in policy advocacy. This series has been redesigned and refreshed to be relevant for foundation staff and trustees who want to review the course and continue building their skills, as well. Each session features thought leaders and peer funders to engage and facilitate discussions on the various topics, and participants learn together in an interactive format.
At the end of the series, funders will have the knowledge to move forward with the development and implementation of their own strategies to participate in policy advocacy. Session attendees will be eligible to receive one free hour of policy advocacy consulting from Philanthropy Northwest's Executive in Residence, Remy Trupin.
Contact Ankita Patel, senior manager, public policy and advocacy, for more information.
