The Missed Opportunities of Shying Away from Public Policy Engagement with Vince Wong
5:00pm - 6:00pm
Audience: Alumni, Current Student, Faculty, Families, Neighbor or Friend, Prospective Student, Staff
Vince Wong serves as Director of Collective Impact for the Michelson Found Animals Foundation talks about how public policy engagement is a long, drawn-out process that we tend to shy away for myriad reasons – time, resources, attention, anxiety, exhaustion, fear, inexperience – just to name a few. But to effect long-term and sustainable change, you need multiple stakeholders – corporate, nonprofit, community, philanthropy, and yes even government – from diverse areas to all come together on collective action that actually makes a difference. In this session we will review some of the challenges, why and how to overcome them, and a bird’s-eye view on current examples of non-traditional, yet successful public policy engagement that drives collective impact benefiting animals and their families.
