Join us for the first panel discussion presented in collaboration with Young Nonprofit Professionals Network Ottawa (YNPN)!

How does policy impact nonprofits, and why it is important for the nonprofit community to be engaged in policy discussions?

The purpose of the panel discussion is to showcase how nonprofits influence and engage in policy issues. The discussion would explore the benefits and challenges facing nonprofits as they respond to changing political and policy environments, and how in this response they can best maximize their impact on policy change.
