This course introduces a powerful, transparent process to identify and analyze key stakeholders for any engagement project – a critical step in an inclusive and thoughtful engagement design process. After understanding the theory and purpose, participants use mini-cases to practice stakeholder mapping. They learn how to identify and analyze the full spectrum of stakeholders, with special emphasis on underrepresented stakeholders who need additional outreach/support to ensure authentic engagement. For each case, the group then learns how to “clean” and finalize the map, and then discusses implementation challenges and how to overcome them.
