Public Engagement & Ethnic Outreach

Our team members are coming from diverse ethnic backgrounds and have extensive experience working with multiple ethnic population groups. We successfully engaged 60 immigrants from seven ethnic groups in the first in BC Training in Civic Engagement Project and brought on board over 40 ethnic HR professionals for brainstorming during the development of the first in BC Cultural Competency Toolkit for Hiring Managers.

  • using diverse public engagement strategies to mobilize community efforts and generate “two-way” conversations
  • building on our understanding of unique needs, relationships and traditions and leadership structures of different cultural groups
  • utilizing our knowledge of “social organization” of people from diverse ethnic backgrounds
