An Interview With Policy Circle Co-Founder Sylvie Légère

By The Policy Circle Team

The Policy Circle’s Co-founder, Sylvie Légère, sat down with Laura Cox Kaplan of the She Said / She Said podcast to talk about how The Policy Circle is engaging women across the nation in a conversation about public policy.

The She Said / She Said podcast was dreamt up at the 2017 Policy Circle Summit in Chicago where Laura

moderated a panel called “Using Your Voice.”

In her own words, Laura describes the opportunity of launching She Said / She Said; “The more I thought about it (and the more Sylvie encouraged me), the more I realized this conversation was needed and that I was the right person to facilitate it and to bring these stories to life. We don’t always realize the impact we have on others or the ways in which our actions — both positive and negative — have impact. We also sometimes overlook how our skills, talents, experiences, and passions can be brought forth to help others. That’s at the heart of “She Said/She Said.”

Check out what Sylvie had to say about how The Policy Circle began, the challenges of starting and developing circles, and the power that comes from creating an opportunity for women to come together to learn, ask questions, and discover their voice.

It’s a movement!

Recommend a Circle Leader.  Especially in California, Wisconsin, and Michigan, Kansas and Arizona where circles are sprouting.

Start a Circle in your community. Your community may be your profession or your neighborhood, or both. Grow professionally, The Policy Circle is a simple way to practice the language of leaders with the facts and the space to be at ease with weighing in on the impact of policy.   

Invest in The Policy Circle. Together let’s build a network of women who want to be part of the dialogue on the impact of policy in their lives.  

The Policy Circle is a 501(c)3 that provides a fact-based, nonpartisan framework built to inspire women living in the same community to connect, learn about and discuss economic policies that impact their lives.  Women across the nation are taking a leadership role in the public policy dialogue on what human creativity can accomplish in an open economy.
