The Art of Policy Writing

Do you want policies that are more engaging, easier to read, and actually impact your workplace - but don’t know where to start?

ASCHA, in partnership with Thought Architects, offers our members “The Art of Policy Writing” a series of workshops and coaching sessions that prepares the participants to write and implement meaningful policies that are not just words. The learning approach of the program is specifically designed to blend consulting, education, and coaching so that participants can complete a task, reflect on it, and consider its application to their environment, and build capacity for change down the road. This model is applied to activities such as Privacy Impact Assessments, quality improvement projects, and developing legislated policies and procedures. Thought Architects will lead participants through the process, help them integrate and find meaning in the process, and are there for support as individuals become self-sufficient and implement the policies they created.

The program consists of 3 online workshops and 2 coaching sessions. The first workshop starts on February 23, 2020 at 2 pm.
