James Hughes

Social welfare policy is not something we frequently talk about. Nor is it something that we hear all that much about. But do you ever wonder how social welfare policy is made? What are the primary concerns? Who’s involved? How does it work?

Mr. Hughes has years of frontline experience in this domain. In this two-day workshop, he lays out the primary considerations in framing, shaping, and implementing social welfare policy.

In addition, Mr. Hughes will also demonstrate how taking a bipartisan approach can lead to policy success. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about how public policy gets made. Register now and join this former policy maker in this informative roundtable discussion.
