At the Co-Design VP Hub, we are pleased to announce our May Speaker Series event: Developing a ‘Community University Policy Alliance’ as a Vehicle for Co-Designing Social Policy Advocacy and Social Policy Reform.

Here are the details:

This presentation will offer some of our key reflections from the first two years of engaging in collaborative policy work through the ‘CUPA’. We will reflect on what it means to intentionally engage a range of stakeholders (including senior leadership in community organizations, policy-makers, grass-roots organizations, social workers, front-line (health and social) service providers and people with lived experience) who each bring different perspectives to social policy and social change making. During this presentation, we intend to consider some of the ethical tensions and possibilities that arise when doing participatory social policy advocacy.
