Decision-Making: Voices from the Field
The Voices from the Field webcast leadership discussion series at Harvard School of Public Health invites decision-makers to speak about their experience making policy decisions that affect global health. Highly interactive and candid, this series is produced in The Leadership Studio for a student audience. The events are webcast live in high-definition, and are posted for future viewing. Students will also learn from experienced leaders about decisions that were effective, decisions that failed, and which decisions, if any, could have been made differently.
