Event description

Description

The Power to Persuade symposium started with a simple idea: that the best way to start breaking down barriers between various groups interested in social policy - designing it, delivering it, evaluating it or affected by it - was to bring them into the same room.

Exploring topical, complex issues facing communities, the community sector, public servants and academics, and offering diverse speakers and perspectives, our symposiums encourage and promote frank and open dialogue about current and emerging challenges and opportunities in social policy.
