About the event

Think tanks fuel new ideas, promote conservative principles in the public policy process, and challenge and defeat the policies of the left.  They are most successful when staffed by talented conservatives, enthusiastic about researching and analyzing the public policy process.

At the Think Tank Opportunity Workshop, expert faculty will teach you how think tanks operate from the inside and what you can do to successfully find and build a career in major research organizations across Washington D.C. and beyond.

Whether you are new to your career, hoping to shape public policy, or considering how you can transition into a think tank, this workshop will help you succeed.

You will learn to:

  • Understand the careers available in think tanks
  • Find your specialty and build a reputation as an expert
  • Research and compose policy documents
  • Communicate your research to decision makers
  • Use your research to lobby and to influence public policy 

You may also be interested in a copy of The Laws of Public Policy by Morton Blackwell.
