Policy and influencing

In an ever-evolving political landscape, staying informed and proactive is a necessity for any organisation trying to influence decision-making in Scotland and the UK. To kick off 2024, we are delighted to host Kezia Dugdale, who will share her insights on the year ahead for Scottish and UK politics.  

Kezia Dugdale is a professor of practice in public service at the University of Glasgow and director of the John Smith Centre. Prior to joining the university, Kezia was a member of the Scottish Parliament for the Lothians region for eight years. Beyond her working life, she is on the board of trustees for Shelter UK and the Electoral Reform Society, and is a member of the Oversight Board for The Promise Scotland.  

There will also be an opportunity to take part in a fun team-based networking activity, in the form of a politics themed quiz.  

Join us for this discussion, which will set the tone for a year of impactful policy making.
