Our People

The strength of Keystone Policy Center is its people. Our staff are public policy and subject matter experts with extensive convening and facilitation experience. That combination is rare and it propels conflicted groups, coalitions, and divergent leaders beyond entrenched positions to common higher ground. Our staff also train current and emerging leaders how to harness the power of collaborative decision-making through in-person and online workshops.
