The website is managed by Lauren Brodsky and Alison Kommer of the HKS Communications Program at the Harvard Kennedy School.
Lauren Brodsky is a Lecturer in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. There, Lauren has taught policy memo writing courses since 2014. Over these years of teaching, students often ask Lauren for examples of “good” policy writing. Policy Memo Resource aims to fill this need. While Lauren believes that there is no perfect example of a policy memo, exploring memos and learning some of the expectations and best practices can lead to improvements.
Alison Kommer is the Program Coordinator of the Harvard Kennedy School Communications Program. Alison has spent most of her career working at Harvard University's Government Department and the Harvard Kennedy School in various roles.
