Workshops, Classes, and Webinars
Our courses deliver up-to-date knowledge about how Washington works and introduce students to the analytical skills needed for policy positions in government, non-governmental organizations, business, and industry.
Scientists, engineers, and health professionals who need to consider public policy in their positions must incorporate a “policy mindset” and skill base to be successful in their duties or career. The same applies to students and postdocs interested in science and technology policy positions.
To cater to those needs, each of our workshops is focused on the specific topic and geographical region that will be of greatest interest and benefit to you and your partipicants.
