Public Policy Leadership Program
About the project: The Public Policy Leadership Program (PPLP) is for practicing policy professionals interested in expanding their capacity to provide breakthrough policy responses through team leadership, engagement and collaboration. Offered by the Telfer School of Management and PPF, you will enhance your understanding of current and emerging policy challenges while developing the leadership skills needed to confidently navigate the complexities of contemporary government policy development.
The program takes a cross-disciplinary approach, integrating personal leadership development learning with an exploration of domestic and global policy issues. The program will build a stronger network of policy leaders that can collectively address the complex issues facing modern governments and other policy-making organizations.
This eight-day program features two Ottawa-based 3-day intensive workshops, supplemented by a 2-day field visit and real-time mentoring from public policy leaders. Throughout the program you will have time to collaborate with other participants on a public policy leadership challenge you bring to the program. Invited public policy leaders, Public Policy Forum staff and Fellows, Telfer faculty, and external researchers will bridge theory and practice, providing a pathway to follow in advancing current challenges. Participants will also have access to all PPF events and reports for one year.
