Shifting organizational objectives and hurdles can naturally create unneeded bureaucracy and personal conflict, making the ability to navigate bureaucracy and conflict impactful skills for policy practitioners. In this panel Mentors will be asked to share how they navigate bureaucracy in the organizations they work for, how they handle conflict that may arise with other policy practitioners, and how they utilize negotiation strategies to help achieve their objectives.
