  • identify where to make a difference and how to define success

...and the sharing of ideas.

CASE STUDY 

Successful Civic Engagement:

Positioned to Succeed Before You Lead

Florida Commission on the Status of Women LEAD Summit Feb. 5, 2020

It was a honor to be invited as a featured speaker and work with a terrific staff to tailor the presentation on civic engagement.  While these strategies could apply to any issue, we focused on how they would guide a community leader who wanted to plan her path for launching a community conversation on the issue of affordable housing, one of the Commission's key policy concerns.

The 90-minute presentation allowed small groups to discuss how the lessons would allow our fictitious successful business leader - who was once a single mother in need of housing - to engage on an issue that personally moved her.

Groups then shared conversations with the larger audience, generating fresh ideas for how to lead on the issue.

 

Your session was perfect. We really appreciate your taking the time to help educate the women of Florida on how to effectively advocate.

An excellent presentation.

(The participants) were so encouraged by your session and determined to make a difference for the people they serve.

In Belize, business leaders wanted to pass along their rich legacy of civic involvement to the next generation of business owners and entrepreneurs.

The six-month program, which began with a conversation,  exceeded expectations for participation and engagement...

...and there were twice as many women leaders as men.
