COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT STRATEGIC SUPPORT
With nearly a decade in community engagement and planning in the public sector,
I facilitate strong, clear, focused, and guided conversation with community and technical advisory committees. I have a track record of creating spaces that build trust between agencies and their community partners. I support space in meetings for trust and relationship-building while moving through the agenda to cover appropriate material.
I guide meetings with a steady hand, sensitivity to political issues, and openness and curiousity to meet folks where they are so that we all arrive to the same page, together.
Please let me know how I can be of service.
I support agency project managers with:
Strategic support for community engagement plan development
Astute understanding of equity, diversity and inclusion as well as the political nature of planning and development work
Support in clear communications and key messaging for stakeholders
Advisory committee facilitation
Developing and co-creating ground rules and boundaries for how we work together as a group
Supporting flow of conversation, and helping those who speak less to speak more and to support those who speak a lot to step back.
