Training Series: Community Engagement – Nothing For Us Without Us

April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Why does Community Engagement matter?

All residents should have a chance to participate in important decisions and take action to improve their communities. Meaningful community engagement is foundational for designing policies and programs that are equitable, accessible and address the real needs of the communities you are working with. There is a well-known quote: “nothing about us without us.”


Who is this training for?

If you want to learn about the foundations of an inclusive community engagement practice in your organization, this session is for you. Led by Lisa Brody Hoffman, this session will walk you through the why and how of community engagement.


What to Expect

In this 75-minute session, we’ll learn about the basics of why community engagement matters and how design-thinking can help you build an on-going, iterative community engagement practice within your team and organization. This workshop will incorporate long-term digital strategies that can be used as a foundation for your community engagement practices.
