Community Engagement

Voice and Perspective

Voice and Perspective

“There is something fundamentally amiss about building or rebuilding a system without consulting at any point those it is designed to serve.” Alison Cook-Sather

The Partnership utilizes the following methods to gather voice and perspective from community members to inform the collective work:

  • Voice and Perspective as Qualitative Data: Utilizing authentic voice and perspective from those most impacted by existing systems/with lived experience. Some of the strategies utilized include:
    • Focus Groups
    • One on One Interviews
    • Surveys
    • Technology Enabled Girl Ambassadors (TEGA) Not currently a strategy being used 
  • ‘Community Talks’ Podcast: Providing a brave space for community leaders, decision makers, youth and the larger community to engage in critical dialogue to move from talk to action to improve economic and social mobility for ALL community members.
