Program

At this free, interactive event developed by Pardee RAND Graduate School in collaboration with Morehouse College, attendees will hear from Brandon Crosby — a Morehouse alumnus, RAND associate behavioral scientist, and Pardee RAND professor — about his pursuit of a policy research career.

Attendees will be exposed to a variety of policy areas and have a chance to talk with researchers, faculty, and Ph.D. students at RAND and the Pardee RAND Graduate School about how to turn a passion for social justice into policies that advance racial equity and social change.

Attendees will participate in a 30-45 minute breakout session of their choice, in which they will engage in a policy discussion to explore ways that research impacts decisionmakers and policymaking. Sessions will also include time for Q&A with the discussion leader.

Speakers and Breakout Sessions

Pardee RAND faculty, students, and RAND experts will lead breakout discussions on the following topics.
