Some of these include:......Working in government or nonprofit settings to shape the conversation around new media and learning through research and policy work.

I find “conversation” quite vague here. What kind of conversation is it?

It's educational marketing language which is, as you've noted, vague. The core meaning I see is "an unfortunate person in the communications department was required to write a marketing blurb. These are the words that person strung together."
