Policy Gurus: Shaping Tomorrow’s World in the Wake of COVID-19
With the turmoil caused by COVID-19 and global lockdowns, many of us are wondering how we can have an impact on government policy to better prepare for future challenges and to turn current difficulties into positive long-term changes.
The wake of World War II brought global and drastic social progress, including moves towards: decolonisation; democratisation; women’s empowerment and liberation; and wonderful initiatives like the NHS in the UK.
So too will COVID-19 reshape our societies. Concepts that were ideals last year are now credible and being shaped into policy around the world, including experiments with the universal basic wage, remote and flexible working, accessible online education, increases in cycle lanes, significantly reduced carbon emissions, and more.
But how can we impact government policy and help shape tomorrow’s world? How can we make our voices heard and work towards real social progress? Join us this week for a discussion on how to get into careers in public policy and non-profits with two inspiring speakers who’ve built their careers around these issues and passions.
With Isla Lamparelli, Exeter Uni student and Edu-venture Exeter founder, our speakers, Angus Mercer and Maria Finnerty, will discuss:
- How they found their passions and made their work more than just a job
- How they built up the necessary skills and network to achieve their goals
- How they developed their expertise in public policy
- Stories of friends and acquaintances who followed different routes to similar end goals
- Their tips for how you can get started in careers in public policy and non-profits
