PFC Webinar: Foundations and Public Policy Engagement – Beauty or Beast? Opportunity or Oxymoron?
November 18, 2015
Join Peter R Elson, PhD Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Community at Mount Royal University, for an engaging exploration of the role of public policy engagement as it relates to Canadian grantmaking foundations. In this hour-long webinar, we’ll profile five distinct stages of public policy engagement. Research, convening stakeholder groups, regulation tracking and impact analysis are only some of the activities that are fundamental to policy engagement – and oh yes, advocacy.
So where does your foundation fit in this picture? Where do you want to fit? You will have a chance to find out and learn how Philanthropic Foundations Canada is partnering with researchers across Canada to explore this and other features of Canadian grant-making foundations.
