Julie Boatright Wilson is the Harry Kahn Senior Lecturer in Social Policy. She is the Faculty co-Chair of two Harvard Kennedy School executive programs: Performance Measurement for Effective Management of Nonprofit Organizations (joint with Harvard Business School) and Leading Successful Social Programs: Using Evidence to Assess Effectiveness. Her teaching and research focuses on poverty policy, family policy, and child welfare and juvenile justice issues. She also teaches courses in research design and research methods. Among her recent projects are several case studies on adoption from public agencies, child welfare and juvenile justice reform, and community-based strategies for strengthening families' capacities to parent. Wilson spent three years at the New York State Department of Social Services, where she directed the Office of Program Planning, Analysis, and Development.
Harvard Kennedy School is proud of its energetic involvement in the world. To better understand how to solve public problems by improving policy and leadership, we engage directly with policymakers, public leaders, governments, nonprofit organizations, and for-profit businesses whose activities affect those problems. However, we recognize that such engagement can raise questions about perceived and potential conflicts of interest, so we disclose publicly the key professional activities of our faculty outside the Kennedy School. The activities disclosed below are for the most recent reporting period, as defined by University policy. Some may be paid, some may be unpaid, and others may be in exchange for expense reimbursement only.
