Workshop: Foundations and Public Policy: Leveraging for Impact
This workshop for young foundation professionals and other philanthropic leaders began with presentations from three panelists. The first part of the session was focused on how foundations can (and can't) engage in policy work and the mechanisms at their disposal. The second portion of the workshop provided exemplars of different kinds of foundations engaging in a variety of policy work. The third portion was the interactive session helping workshop participants to understand their own work through the policy lens. Small groups worked on case studies of foundations from which they developed policy engagement strategies.
