From Designing Policy Solutions to Building Coalitions

Key Strategies for Intermediaries to Engage in Policy and Advocacy

At a Glance

This paper outlines potential actions and roles for intermediaries to facilitate the development and implementation of truly equitable education-to-career pathways systems. Specifically, it could guide the broader field of intermediary organizations and efforts to engage in policy and advocacy by outlining how intermediaries can influence the design and implementation of policy solutions to address systemic inequity. Recognizing that intermediaries range widely in size, capacity, and purpose, we offer suggestions that organizations can apply wherever they sit in the policy space. The resource also highlights a set of Building Equitable Pathways (BEP) intermediaries and their work in policy and advocacy.
