TSPN is kicking off the new year with another workshop in our 101 series!

This workshop focuses on policy writing, which will be led by Hema Vyas, a Professional Policy Advisor. She will lead participants through the basics of how to write policy. Participants will then have the chance to practice their writing during the workshop and receive feedback from the workshop instructor.
