Event Details

On September 10, 2019, Manitobans will go to the polls and elect their next provincial government. Whatever the outcome of the electoral process might be – this session will provide an opportunity to consider how charities and non-profits can be best positioned for effective government relations.  To what extent will potential scenarios have an effect on charities and non-profits?  How can charities and non-profits build relationships with -government actors and, in turn, influence the public policy agenda? How and when do charities and non-profits communicate with and to whom in the next government?  To what extent will potential scenarios have an effect on charities and non-profits?  How can charities and non-profits build relationships with -government actors and, in turn, influence the public policy agenda? How and when do charities and non-profits communicate with and to whom in the new government? These are just a few of the important questions that will be posed at this session to assist charities and non-profits transition to the next government.

This session is organized by Karine Levasseur and Andrea Rounce — facilitators of the three-day ‘Government Relations’ workshop offered by the United Way of Winnipeg — and hosted by the United Way of Winnipeg. This session will also feature a guest speaker from the next government to discuss the transition, the priorities of the next government and how charities and non-profits can work with the next government to have their concerns heard. 

Come and join us for a great conversation! 

 

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.

Andrea Rounce, Ph.D 

Andrea is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Studies at the University of Manitoba. She teaches and researches in public administration. A primary focus of Andrea’s research is government's use of public opinion research and consultation; public sector governance; and research methodology. Emphasizing the need to bridge theory and practice, Andrea also works with public sector organizations on policy and governance issues while working collaboratively on community engagement and education projects around elections and voting.
