2019 Skills Symposium: Building a Strategic Approach to Public Participation Online – A Real World Workshop

  • 21 Mar 2019
  • 35 Laurier St, Gatineau, QC J8X 4E9, Canada
  • 7

It’s commonly accepted that in community engagement “face-to-face” is always best, and digital is a supporting act.

Without changing this belief, just for a moment, think what it would look like if your community engagement was designed as digital-first? How might it change the way we think about online practices, skill and organizational arrangements? How would we continue to ensure deep engagement where minority voices are heard.

Bang the Table’s workshop is aimed at engagement practitioners within an organization or in a consulting role. The course focuses on real projects and how they will unfold online in the development of an outstanding, consistent and strategic approach for the inclusion of online tools. This is a practical workshop.
