Cet atelier est seulement disponible en anglais

Innoweave is pleased to partner with the Carleton University Master of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership program to offer a Constructive Engagement Workshop. 

The workshop is designed to help leadership teams of  3-4 (including board members) start to develop a draft engagement strategy and plan, by:

  • Identifying the outcomes they hope to achieve as an organization (i.e. intended impact);
  • Isolating policy and practice barriers to those outcomes, and discern who needs to be engaged to remove those barriers;
  • Determining what those people would need to do differently, such as institute a change in policy or practice;
  • Selecting among approaches and tactics for engagement and change;
  • Drafting the questions to ‘finalize’ for an engagement strategy, including what else needs to be figured out and who else needs to be engaged.

This workshop will be led by Sean Moore. Sean has more than 30 years experience in public-policy and advocacy related to local, provincial/state and federal government affairs in Canada and the United States. Sean is a recipient of the 2013 Bissett Distinguished Alumni Award from Carleton University's School of Public Policy & Administration (SPPA).
