15 March 2022

10:00 – 12:15 GMT

Working with Policy Makers – with Dr Sabina Strachan of how2glu

About this Event

This workshop will help you understand policy drivers for engaging with research and explore techniques for framing your engagement in order to influence. A focus will be on approaches to communication and dissemination – specifically ‘messaging’, developing briefing, and options for communication channels – mindful of the present context and policymakers’ priorities.

Working individually and in small groups you’ll use a graphic glucard™ tool to work through steps to achieve more effective engagement with policymakers. And we will explore a range of methods that can be used to develop your policy engagement – such as ‘strategic fit’, ‘cost:benefit’, ‘personas’ and ‘message house’.

Sabina will also draw on her perspectives of influencing policy when she was a PhD student, academic engagement as a civil/public servant, and her consultancy experience where she facilitates strategy development and policy influence. Sabina will illustrate concepts and demonstrate tools by sharing live visualisations and signpost further resources. You’ll share learning with fellow participants and capture specific actions to take forward.

Tickets will be released to DTP students approximately 2 months before the event; and remaining tickets will be offered to non-DTP students around one month before the event.
