Volunteer Opportunity

IPAC IMPACT - Edmonton Region

We are looking for volunteers to assist with the editing, publicizing, and recruitment of contributors to our IPAC Impact Blog. The Impact Blog follows a simple "3 + 3 = 300" model, challenging authors to identify three things everyone needs to know about a particular policy issue and three myths surrounding it... all in three hundred words or less. Topics have ranged from "Is vaccination a civic duty?", "Are Canadian youth politically active?", and "How do we empower digital public servants?" to "What role can provinces play in international relations?", "Are PhDs Too Smart or Too Slow for Government?", and "Is there a place for nurses in government?" Bloggers have included a wide range of tenured Professors and Deputy Ministers, policy analysts and political science students. Special focus has been placed on mobilizing knowledge - inviting published authors from IPAC's own Canadian Public Administration journal and various partner think tanks to transmit their research to a broader audience of civil servants through the Impact Blog. This approach has proven appealing, with an average of 1500 unique readers visiting the Impact Blog each month.

If you are interested in volunteering to support this initiative, please contact: Jared Wesley, Pracademic Chair, IPAC Edmonton, jwesley@ualberta.ca
