Reaching Diverse Audiences in Public Engagement

When engaging the public, elected officials want to hear from residents who reflect the full perspectives, knowledge and identities of their communities. One of the biggest public engagement challenges is reaching such diverse audiences rather than just the “same ten people,” as well as addressing barriers that prevent some groups from actively participating.

If you are facing similar questions in your public engagement work, please join our upcoming free webinar for BC elected officials and CAOs working in local government:



Beyond "the Usual Suspects" - How to Reach Diverse Audiences in Public Engagement
Thursday, March 3, 2016
10:30am-12:00pm (PST)
