Webinar Description

Presenter: James Bell III, DSW

Each community has a different history, make-up, and unique way of interacting. We often understand community engagement as a strategy to organize individuals for some form of collective action. Working in partnership with the community looks significantly different from working on behalf of the community. In effort to build social capital, there are many pitfalls social workers should avoid to ensure all voices are heard and incorporated into decision making. This webinar details how to strengthen approaches to engaging the community while holding yourself and your organization accountable.

Learning Objectives

  • 1. Develop a shared language and understanding of community engagement.

  • 2. Demonstrate the utility of the community engagement continuum in organizational decision-making.

  • 3. Articulate the structures that need to be in place for community engagement initiatives to be sustainable.
