Ever wondered what happens around the policy table in the Prime Minister's office? Ever curious about why some policies make it on the agenda and others don't? In her workshop, Rachel Curran, former Director of Policy to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, will take participants through the ins and outs of decision-making and the exercise of political power at the center of our federal government. She will explore the various facets of the PMO, who is on the team, how decisions are made, and the dynamics between the Prime Minister's Office and the public service. She will also explore some of the major decisions that have been made around domestic and international policy crises, as well as what she thinks can be done to improve how policy is made at the 'centre’.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to find out what goes on at the core of our democracy's decision-making!
