An Introductory Course in Public Policy (Sneak Peek)


A message from Vandita Morarka, Founder and CEO:

This is a very exciting month for us at One Future Collective! We’re launching our first introductory course in Public Policy, in collaboration with St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai, and Forum for Research on Civic Affairs.

Every aspect of life, from the boardroom to the bedroom, is a result of policy action. This course helps participants gain an introductory understanding of public policy. It will inform participants on how they can engage with policy, either to increase or amplify the impact of their own work — whatever the arena may be — or to explore public policy as a career path. We will examine basic concepts of policy, its evolution, social policy, technology and governance, and so on.

The course also involves active experiential and practice-based components, so that participants learn about the subject through a practical, real-world approach. It will also give participants a chance to gain exposure to networking and mentoring opportunities from industry leaders. You will get the chance to interact with a variety of speakers and mentors, ranging from an ex-Chief Secretary of Maharashtra, lawyers, directors of not-for-profits, academicians, to practitioners from leading social impact consultancies.


Takeaways from the Public Policy Institute, running on 4-5th and 11-12th August 2018.
