As project stakeholders become increasingly diverse (in all ways), practitioners are challenged to design and implement robust and inclusive engagement processes that successfully and authentically engage all communities. Participants leave this highly-participatory and practical course with a deeper understanding of the spectrum of diversity, skills and tools to design robust and inclusive engagement processes, and explicit guidance on how to develop a comprehensive and effective implementation plan using the right tools and techniques – plus a great cohort of colleagues to help you with this work over time.
