Evidence Informed Policy & Program Design


Tuesday 25th, Wednesday 26th May & Tuesday 1st June 2021

With rapid political, economic and social change becoming a constant, planning for agility is essential to policy design. All programs and policies must be designed with a focus on how to respond to change quickly and be ready for continuous improvement. Furthermore, with access to more data than ever, policy and program designers must contend with the difficult challenge of cutting through the noise,  identifying the right data to act on, and communicating with it in a compelling way.

This interactive Masterclass is an opportunity to learn how to build agility into your program and policy design. Walk away with a ready to implement toolkit to help you outline your program, your proposal and the impact it will have on your key stakeholders. Then learn how to  connect high quality data and evidence to policy design, and how to cut through and tell your stakeholders an engaging story about your  policy.
