Launch of India's largest community dedicated to careers, up-skilling and networking in Public Policy 🥳
The Policy Post #111
Announcing the launch of - The Policy Square (TPS) by PPI x YLAC, a community for students and young professionals to connect with and learn from like-minded individuals, decision-makers, experts, thought leaders, and other key stakeholders in the field of public policy. TPS creates learning, mentoring, up-skilling and networking opportunities to help its members build successful public policy careers. We believe that a community of committed, principled and effective public policy professionals can inform better policies and serve as the bedrock for India’s progress. Curating the TPS community is a step towards that.
By becoming a member, you get access to a whole host of offerings across India - including but not limited to in-person workshops, up-skilling and networking events across different focus areas within the policy space - tech policy, gender, sustainability and so on for a full year.
Public policy is a dynamic and upcoming field that attracts individuals from diverse backgrounds and interests. Much of the understanding of the field and its thematic nuances remains with professionals within the space and there are limited opportunities to connect and collaborate. Unlike more mature industries, the public policy space is still very nascent and structural platforms for engagement are yet to evolve. There are also barriers to accessing career advancement opportunities and staying informed about the latest developments in the field.
This is precisely the gap that The Policy Square aims to bridge by providing more exposure and professional development opportunities to young professionals interested in the field.
The Policy Square is open to all professionals and students older than 20 years of age with up to 6 years of relevant work experience. If you are more experienced but believe that TPS is aligned with your interests and is likely to benefit your career, please feel free to apply. The eligibility criteria prescribed here is only indicative.
Okay awesome! Where do I sign up🥳
We want our members to make the most of the opportunities that come with The Policy Square. Therefore, we will review the profile of applicants to ensure members are a good fit for the community. Our aim is to bring together a vibrant group of people from diverse backgrounds.
The deadlines for applying to the community are - 16th of April, 2023
