Session 3: Engaging Diverse Stakeholders to Lead

This 3-hour workshop focuses on building a team that can lead change. “Team” in this context is considered broadly and includes diverse stakeholders who, together, can make bringing about change more likely than if it comes from a single voice. Participants will identify who these stakeholders are for the change they are targeting and develop expertise in techniques to bring the group together and successfully engage both allies and opponents.

The workshop will include a mix of lecture, small-group discussion, and hands-on practice. Participants will leave with a toolbox and plan identifying which stakeholders to engage at what part of the process, an understanding of how to align messaging with stakeholders’ goals and motivations, and techniques for engaging even unlikely candidates in the achievement of the goal.
