    Engaging the community to shape your organization’s priorities and decisions

    For stronger public policy creation and community building, the nonprofit sector needs to connect differently with residents and groups already active in our communities.

    This session will focus on:

    • Understanding the importance of engaging local residents authentically
    • Developing an organizational culture that includes local residents within the organization
    • Addressing the challenges and establishing strategies for meaningful engagement
