As much as we’re enjoying the summer, we’re looking forward to going back to school and diving right into all that the City and Wagner have to offer. Our 2011-2012 Wagner Policy Alliance Board members: Maggie Raife, David Glick, Elizabeth Walczak, Sharon Carney and Zainab Ali have been working since late Spring on what of programming and experiences to bring to “Wagnerds” this upcoming year. Some of the things we have up our sleeves include: a discussion with the NYC Human Resources Administration Commissioner Robert Doar in honor of the 15th Anniversary of welfare reform; our signature State of the City event focused on a timely policy issue; open board meetings and socials; brown bag lunches addressing policy issues such as poverty and social welfare; a forum addressing the upcoming Presidential race and much more. If you’d like to plan with us, attend an event or just see what we’re doing, please follow this blog and “Like” us on Facebook! We’ll be updating this site with upcoming events, links we like, blogs on events, people and policy issues to be aware of.
