Date: Friday, April 18, 2014
Time: 8:30am - 2:00pm
Location: King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center at 53 Washington Square South, NYC

This conference is aimed to bridge the divide between policy making and practice. Public service professionals in policy making must hone a set of critical skills in order to address policy issues in diverse communities. The NYU Wagner Association of Latin@s & Allies in Public Service (ALAS), in collaboration with the NYU Wagner Asian and Pacific American Student Alliance (APASA), Black Student Association (BSA), and Stonewall Policy Alliance (SPA) are hosting a skill-building conference for NYU Wagner students, preparing students to be able to address policy challenges in diverse communities by developing skills in the following workshops: Community Organizing & Advocacy, Diversity & Cultural Sensitivity, Social Enterprise, and Participatory Budgeting & Policy Making. Through this tailored set of workshops, we hope to enhance the critical skills that public service students can utilize in their work in a variety of sectors - non-profit, government, advocacy, and beyond. In addition to capacity-building for public service in diverse communities, we also hope to create a collaborative space for community building. We hope that this conference serves as a space to address challenges and opportunities for engaging, meaningful work in communities in New York City and beyond.

Partner Organizations:
Association of Latin@s & Allies in Public Service (ALAS)
Black Student Association (BSA)
