How can academics and policymakers engage in dialogues and build bridges across these communities? How can academics learn about questions that policymakers are grappling with to focus research and teaching efforts? How can academics better communicate our research to policymakers? How can academics guide our students in public policy and management towards careers in public service?  For students and young professionals entering the academic-policy worlds, we look forward to the insights from policy leaders on navigating entry into the policy world and working up the ladder to provide service to the nation. Policy leader share their experiences in the service in the fields of environment, energy, science & technology and in the fields of urban development and human welfare.
