Building a Network that Extends into the Worlds you Hope to Influence

Presenters: 

Lee Badgett, Ph.D.
Professor & CPPA Director
Department of Economics
University of Massachusetts Amherst

Description: 

The old adage for finding a job works here, too:  “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.”  A rich professional network that extends well beyond the university should include journalists, policymakers, their staffs, community organizations, and other players in the fields we’re trying to engage with. This workshop session shows how to first identify, locate, and contact the players to strategically build customized networks that can connect truth to power.
