Policy analysis is an important part of problem solving and program leadership, however, it is often hard to set aside time to reflect on and develop effective policy strategies amidst the day-to-day demands of program management. In this session, participants will have an opportunity to pause and reflect on policy analysis, their role, and what tools they need for success. Participants will also gain confidence in their ability to implement and analyze the impact of policy changes overtime and how to engage staff and clients in the process. Overall, participants will walk away with concrete steps and resources on how to strengthen their policy skills and SNAP E&T program.
