The first six sessions in the speaker series will be panel-based. We’ll kick off with a summary of the policy issue at hand from the Dais’s Executive Director, Karim Bardeesy, and then listen to experts and leaders from the U.S. on a panel sharing their takes on the policies.
Learn How To Influence Policy
The Fellowship is focused on learning followed by action. By week 7, you’ll be more knowledgeable on U.S. policies, how they affect Canada, and which issues interest you the most. The last two sessions in the fellowship will be workshops focused on how you can influence policy to create social change in your community and will be designed to get you thinking like a leader. We’ll help you turn your passion in action.
For each session, you will be in a virtual room with up to 150 peers, all selected for their skills, interests, and commitment to making change. You’ll have the opportunity to build relationships and further discuss the sessions’ content in a private LinkedIn community group. At the end of the program, you’ll join our CanStudyUS alumni network and will have access to exclusive events and networking opportunities.
Recognition of Your Skills
All Fellows who attend at least six of the eight live sessions will receive a certificate and a LinkedIn badge to acknowledge the skills they have gained through the program.
