These days, everyone seems to be jumping on the public engagement bandwagon. But most organizations don’t fully understand what public and stakeholder engagement entails, and they fail to create participatory processes that are constructive and truly democratic. How do you actively involve people in a meaningful way that fosters understanding, builds consensus, and catalyzes community leadership?
I can help your organization develop a collaborative engagement process that brings diverse people and voices to the conversation, asks powerful questions, encourages constructive dialogue, and leads to a sustained impact.
- Designing feedback mechanisms such as online surveys
- Writing backgrounders
- Organizing and facilitating group sessions, in-depth interviews, focus groups, and kitchen table discussions
- Using a variety of participatory group process such as World Café and Open Space Technology
