How to write an op-ed, Institute for Research on Public Policy

December 5, 2017

1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Jennifer Ditchburn, editor-in-chief of Policy Options, and Shannon Sampert, editor and director of the Evidence Network, spend their days devoted to mobilizing knowledge from Canadian researchers. They’ll share their strategies on how to write sharp op-eds for broader consumption, one of the most important ways to ensure your analysis and research is shared in the public sphere.
