The Davenport Institute for Public Engagement and Civic Leadership at the School of Public Policy will host Nicole Winger, deputy controller for public affairs for California state controller Betty Yee, in a Davenport Discussion on Thursday, March 30, at noon in SPP 175.
Winger will talk about various career options within the state, as well as her career path within the office of the secretary of state, the state superintendent of public instruction, and leaders in both houses of legislature. Currently Winger directs communications across multiple platforms while managing media relations, constituent services, community education, and high-profile initiatives.
Each semester at the Pepperdine School of Public Policy, the Davenport Institute hosts a series of lunchtime Davenport Discussions with practitioners, journalists, innovators, and researchers who speak to students on a wide range of issues from state and local finance to the use of technology in government to the outlook for cities in a state budget crisis and much more. These interactive sessions give students an opportunity not only to hear from experts in the field but to ask questions and make personal connections as well. For more information contact Sarah Axen.
Lunch will be served.
