About 2019 Public Policy Conference

This conference is now sold out.

As California embarks on a new era of leadership in state government, philanthropy has a civic opportunity to help pave the roads ahead for our state. Facing continued uncertainty in the federal government, California can truly serve as role model for the power of collaboration between philanthropy and government and become a beacon of democracy in our country.

Presented in partnership with the California Budget & Policy Center, SCG’s Public Policy Conference is the preeminent convening in our region that brings together hundreds of your peers from the philanthropic and civic sectors to take an in-depth look at the latest policy analysis and research and to prepare for and address key issues impacting our work. At this conference, you will connect with peers and gain powerful ideas and insights to advance your work and lead meaningful change with partners in our sector and beyond.

This year's conference will hone in on the changing public policy landscape in an environment led by a new Governor and a wave of other new policymakers in Sacramento and Washington.

Join us on April 8 for a day of candid conversations about our sector's role in changing systems, strengthening our communities and building a better future for California.
