Scholars often lament that their work is read only by other scholars, and is not reaching policy makers, practitioners, or others who can institute real social change. This workshop will feature a panel of experts who can help scholars share their research findings and expertise with policy makers. Specific foci will include tips for giving effective expert testimonies to legislators, and building productive collaborative relationships with policy makers.
