Are you kicking off a community planning process and beginning to think about outreach and engagement? Are you feeling overwhelmed and not sure where to start? Have you had little success in engaging more than the usual suspects?

This hands-on interactive training proposes 5 Steps that break down the process of creating a public participation strategy. Learn best practices for thoughtful community engagement including examples of meeting design and engaging ways of getting public participation outside of the traditional public meeting format.

Done right, community engagement builds trust – even when consensus is out of reach. It brings fresh thinking, new voices, and creates a more informed, involved public. It brings people into the process, and brings the process to them. That means new ideas, new participants – and plans with wider support.

This training is for anyone who wants to enhance their outreach practices, including municipal staff and others doing similar work.  It includes a Community Engagement Guide, a Strategy Chart, example activities and more!

The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) is a regional planning agency serving the people who live and work in the 101 cities and towns of Metropolitan Boston. Our mission is promoting smart growth and regional collaboration. Making sure we are working for the best interests of everyone in the Metro Boston Region is a critical component of MAPC’s mission. Therefore, effective community outreach and civic engagement is at the core of our success!

mki_finallogo_3c-min

You will receive the Zoom Link for this training after you’ve registered, closer to the date of the Training.

What do we mean by “emotional intelligence” and why is it so important for individuals, teams, and organizations to develop?  Given the major shifts of 2020, it has never been more critical to have true emotional awareness and management skills as we reimagine our work and our relationship to those we serve. In this course, we will examine Daniel Goleman’s EI model and use the quadrant competencies to practice self-assessment.  We will examine how this framework plays out in all the arenas of our lives—at work, at home, and in our communities.  And we will look at ways of strengthening our EI competencies, particularly those that lend to personal and organizational resilience in a time of change.  This participatory workshop aims to help you see yourself and those around you from a deeper lens.

Advanced Grant Seeking @ Zoom
Oct 6 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Online-Workshop-700x500_0_0-min

Nonprofit organizations often seek grant support but fall short in receiving an award. Competition for grants continues to grow as government funding dwindles and COVID-19 impacts the stock market. Learn how to present your case for support no matter the type or size of grant you are requesting. This session will sharpen your grant-seeking skills by making your proposal more competitive.

From logic models to making your case for support using 2,000 or less characters, this workshop will help you prepare successful paper and paperless proposal narratives including those to the different levels of government. There will be a discussion on the use of Gantt and PERT charts as well as other visual aids to help reviewers quickly understand the intent of your proposed project. You will also learn strategies to use when preparing proposals for multi-year funding or large awards.

This workshop is all about improving on the skills you’ve already developed, shedding old habits, and learning new techniques to make your grant proposals more competitive. Ideal participants will be those with two or more years of experience preparing grant proposals. You must have an understanding of how to develop a strong needs statement, goals and outcomes, evaluation strategies, and the budget and justification for the project/program they propose.

Navigating Bias in the Workplace @ Zoom
Oct 6 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Understanding that biases are active in all human interactions is essential. In this workshop, we will explore assessing organizational and sector bias as well as implicit bias we carry as individuals in a workplace. Specifically, we will examine bias in hiring and also in assigning work and leadership roles. BRIDGE’s focus is on supporting non-profit managers and leaders in navigating your biases and identifying resources or diverse teams to provide antidotes to biases in projects or biases that will exist on homogeneous teams. A personal bias, simply a preference, can disrupt work or set shared goals and vision backwards. Having a culture that is prepared to examine bias in all interactions and planning is essential.

Join us for a workshop presented by Gwendolyn VanSant, CEO and Founding Director of BRIDGE. Founded in 2007, BRIDGE (dba Multicultural BRIDGE) is a grassroots organization dedicated to advancing equity and justice by promoting cultural competence, positive psychology, and mutual understanding and acceptance. The organization acts as a catalyst for change through collaboration, education, training, dialogue, fellowship and advocacy.
