WEBINAR: How to Connect with Policymakers — Better, Faster, and for Free


Do you want to communicate more effectively with—and convince—policymakers to support programs and proposals for social change? If your organization wants to scale impact, effectively connecting with governments is key.

For this Network webinar, Lisa Witter and Odette Chalaby of Apolitical, one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in the World in 2018, will join us for a practical and interactive “how-to” and provide eight concrete tips and examples of the best ways to communicate effectively with policymakers, based on data and behavioral science.

You’ll learn:
–How to get clear on the process, timeline, and scalability of your proposal
–How to avoid “cognitive overload” by communicating a combination of data and stories that make your message digestible
–Ways to help policymakers “sell” your ideas to other public servants and citizens

If you’d like to submit a draft op-ed to be workshopped by Apolitical’s editors during the webinar, let us know at We’ll select two submissions.

*Apolitical takes op-ed pitches. Past writers include former Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Steven Pinker, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Sharon Z. Roerty and Karabi Acharya and Amanda Daflos, who leads the Los Angeles innovation team in Mayor Garcetti’s office.*
