Transition to Policy: Roles in the Public Sector and Think Tanks

There is an enormous need for insightful expertise and skilled policy-makers to guide our conversations across all areas of policy, whether local, in your home country or on a global scale.

Speakers on this panel will share personal experience of their daily working lives, how they moved from academia to policy-facing roles and suggestions of what you can do now to strengthen your chances of gaining a foothold in the policy world.
