  • The Power to Persuade symposium started with a simple idea: that the best way to start breaking down barriers between various groups interested in social policy - designing it, delivering it, evaluating it or affected by it - was to bring them into the same room.

    Exploring topical, complex issues facing communities, the community sector, public servants and academics, and offering a diverse range of speakers and perspectives, our symposiums encourage and promote frank and open dialogue about current and emerging challenges and opportunities in social policy.
