We invited over twenty different nonprofits, fellowships, and organizations and twenty industry professionals to speak about their experiences connecting their work to the public sector. This year, the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership will center the theme around "Establishing Your Career," doubling the numbers of organizations and professionals to help meet your needs.
