As project stakeholders and their perspectives become increasingly diverse, practitioners are challenged to intentionally design and successfully implement robust and inclusive engagement processes that ethically and equitably engage all key stakeholder groups. Participants leave this highly-participatory and practical course with a deeper understanding of the “spectrum of diversity,” skills and tools to design robust and inclusive engagement processes, and explicit guidance on how to develop a comprehensive and effective implementation plan using the right tools and techniques – plus a great cohort of colleagues to help you with this work over time.

PLEASE NOTE: International IAP2 members require a code to register. Please contact info@iap2canada.ca to obtain it.
