When you know how things work and who does what in government, what do you do with this information? This one-day workshop focuses on developing a government relations strategy for organizations who have an existing relationship with government(s) or want to build a relationship to help facilitate goals and objectives. It will address key questions, including:

  • What do you want to achieve?
  • What do you want government(s) to know about your organization and its goals, objectives, challenges, and successes?
  • How and when will you communicate with government?”

This workshop provides an introduction to government relations and hands-on work toward developing or refining a strategy for an organization.


ABOUT THE FACILITATORS

Karine Levasseur, Ph.D


Karine is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Studies at the University of Manitoba. She earned her PhD. in the School of Public Policy and Administration at Carleton University. While Karine has many research interests, she is particularly interested in how governments in Canada relate (or do not relate) to voluntary organizations. Her research explores how voluntary organizations can become more meaningfully involved in public policy development, and not just resigned to implement public policy decisions made without their involvement.
