Policy can be shaped, stunted, or supercharged by advocacy -- but what does advocacy look like as a career, and what marks an effective advocate? In this MPP forum, Emily will share a few lessons she has learned navigating the world of global health advocacy over a decade marked by crises -- from Ebola, to Zika, to COVID-19 -- and political and social shifts that upended her views of the global health and development field and her place in it.
MPP Forum is a weekly event normally scheduled on Fridays during the academic year. It allows each MPP candidate to showcase their career journey and expertise on policy issue of their choice with the SPIA community. This formal presentation is about 50 minutes followed by 20-minute Q &A.
The MPP Forum is supported by a bequest from mid-career alumnus Christopher Meyer (MCF '83-'84) who was an authority on copyright law in private practice, academia and government.
