Bright Idea LogoThe Family Impact Seminars were named a Bright Idea on September 25, 2012 by the Harvard Innovations in American Government Awards Program. The Seminars are a proven, replicable, and cost-effective model that advances evidence-based policy and overcomes partisan paralysis. The selections were made by a panel of policy experts to recognize and promote creative government initiatives and partnerships. The Innovations in American Government Awards Program is housed at the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.
