In May 2016, the Philadelphia Behavioral Science Initiative hosted a one-day behavioral science workshop, where members of City Hall and Philadelphia-area academics came together to discuss how the social and behavioral sciences can be deployed to create more effective policies and programs in Philadelphia.
Funding for the Behavioral Science Workshop was provided by the Fels Policy Research Initiative at the University of Pennsylvania, The Psych Report, and the Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility at Swarthmore College.
