Engaging communities through conversations

Title

Engaging communities through conversations

Description

In 2015, The American Library Association (ALA) partnered with The Harwood institute for Public Innovation to offer the Public Innovators Lab for Libraries. By serving as a public innovator and having a better understanding of our communities, we not only can create programs and strategies to address challenges people care about, but also make the community stronger. As one of the participants of the Public Innovators Lab, the presenter learned how to utilize the “turning outward” approach to effectively engage communities. In this presentation, the presenter will provide an overview of the “turning outward” approach, steps on how to lead community conversations and how to create conditions for change and sustainability.
