Policy Dialogues

The unit for public policy facilitates policy dialogues among state, business, media and education leaders.

These conversations range from small-scale roundtable discussions to high-profile invitational leadership summits at which trustees, chief executives, policymakers, and business leaders forge a shared public agenda for social, environmental and economic issues. The unit staff lay the groundwork for constructive communication. Based on the critical success factors identified through careful study of these and similar initiatives, the policy team helps foster and sustain these conversations so that participants work as teams to establish shared priorities while respecting institutional responsibilities and relationships.
