Every Voice Engaged Foundation Showcased at the National Coalition on Dialogue & Deliberation
Every Voice Engaged® Foundation (Scotts Valley, CA) will be showcased at the National Coalition on Dialogue & Deliberation’s (Seattle, WA) bi-annual conference. Held in Seattle from October 12-14, the conference is a national gathering of civic innovators including scholars, activists, public officials, nonprofit leaders and others who engage and mobilize people across partisan, ethnic and other divides.
Conference participants will share leading-edge projects, programs and tools to support the conference theme of “How can we build a more robust civic infrastructure for our practice, our communities and our country?”
Through a variety of speakers and workshops, participants will explore the latest innovations in dialogue, deliberation and public engagement and how they can be applied to building capacity to make better decisions and solve problems effectively in the long-term.
Every Voice Engaged will highlight current collaborative solutions including in-person and online tools for public engagement to support this mission of building a robust national infrastructure to serve citizens both now and in the future.
Every Voice Engaged is committed to transforming communities and organizations with the power of every voice. Trained facilitators use serious games-driven, collaborative activities to uncover stakeholders’ true concerns. This results in deeper insights and builds commitment to drive sustainable change and growth.
The National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation promotes the use of dialogue, deliberation, and other innovative group processes to help people come together across differences to tackle the most challenging civic problems. They serve as a gathering place, a resource clearinghouse, a news source, and a facilitative leader for the dialogue and deliberation community and beyond.
