What kind of leaders join the Statewide Leadership Council?
As an independent, nonpartisan institute, PPIC casts a broad net when inviting prominent citizens to join the Statewide Leadership Council. Members reflect the state’s demographic, political, racial/ethnic, and regional diversity; they have leadership roles in the public and private sectors, in nonprofits and foundations, and in universities and research organizations; they are state leaders who understand the critical role of research and information in public policymaking; and they share PPIC’s goal of contributing to an informed public policy process that will improve the policy decisions shaping both California’s economic well-being and its quality of life in the 21st century.
