ISPS Policy-Related Skills Development: “How to Write a Policy Brief,” with Nate Loewentheil, Camber Creek
ISPS POLICY-RELATED SKILLS DEVELOPMENT - FALL 2020 VIRTUAL TRAINING
“Reforming public policy can be extraordinarily complicated and require revising detailed legislative language, changing financial incentives, or modifying arcane programs. This level of detail may be appropriate for a bureaucrat, but to convince elected officials and the media that your argument matters, you need to tell a clear story. In this session, I will explain both the process for developing the substance of a policy proposal and for packaging that proposal in a clear story. I will draw on a recent report, ‘Big Ideas for Small Business,’ as well as my time at the White House National Economic Council.” - Nate Loewentheil
