Community Engagement 2022
Engaging Well in a Hybrid World
Engaging Well in a Hybrid World
May 17 or June 22, 2022 | Virtual Workshop
2020-2021 brought us the big pivot—where we figured out how to engage virtually—and the big reckoning—where we questioned how inclusive, representative, and accountable are our engagement practices? Now as we enter 2022, unaware of what the year will hold, practitioners are considering what hybrid community engagement will look like. Rather than returning to the old way of doing things, community representatives are asking how can we do things differently? We are hearing questions like:
How can we reinvigorate our engagement?
How can we engage meaningfully and creatively in a hybrid world?
How can we ensure our engagement is inclusive?
Join us in this workshop to learn, share, get inspired, and feel confident as you engage in 2022.
Understand the trends in community engagement
We will explore the trends in community engagement—see what’s emerging across the field and what’s important to keep in mind as you engage in 2022.
Learn the building blocks of hybrid engagement
Understand the core components and principles of hybrid engagement with examples of new approaches to try in your own work.
Learn how to design iterative engagement processes
We will take you through an exercise to design a compelling hybrid engagement process that is iterative in nature. See an example of how it all fits together.
Overcome barriers and create spaces for inclusive engagement
Take stock of what barriers your community members are facing and what you can do to support their involvement.
