September Lunch Presentation
The virtual presentation featured a panel discussion about advocacy - what it is, best strategies and how to be an effective advocate. Both Diane and Lisa answered questions facilitated by Karmen Rubin and Rebecca Montgomery. Both speakers emphasized the importance of education as a key component of advocacy. Many of the questions addressed the Women's Policy Forum's goal to increase our advocacy efforts. In a followup meeting immediately after the lunch presentation, members discussed ways to incorporate and enhance WPF's advocacy efforts. In that meeting, members of the advocacy committee discussed ways to provide an "umbrella" organization that helps its members discover avenues to collaborate and advocate.
