At the top of the poster are the two logos of the sponsors and below that in a bright orange rectangle is the title of the event followed by a smaller yellow rectangle naming this as a Scholars Strategy Network workshop. Underneath that in large black letters is the date and time of the event as well as how to register. Below that is a description of the workshop and next to the description is a stylized version of the Springfield capitol dome building.

About the event: The Chicagoland chapter of the Scholars Strategy Network (SSN) and Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy are excited to co-host a virtual training on how to write compelling and jargon-free policy briefs. Participants will move through each step of the policy brief drafting process and actively shape their idea into a first draft. The workshop includes practical information on how to distribute your policy brief for maximum impact. Each researcher should come to the workshop with an idea about a possible topic for their policy brief. All interested Chicago-based academics are welcome. There will be time for small group discussions and to address any questions that you have.

About the Series: The goal of the Policy 101 Workshop Series is to increase the impact and visibility of UIC scholars’ research. Policy 101 workshops provide UIC faculty and graduate students with focused training that increases their ability to participate in public policy conversations. Policy 101 workshops are taught by professionals and academics who are experts at translating academic research into policy-ready documents, policy presentations and civic engagement and will be offered bi-annually on a rotating basis.
