Through engagement we recognize the desire for people to contribute to decisions that affect them. But is engagement always needed or recommended?
Avens developed the Public Engagement Readiness Assessment (PERA) tool through its strategic alliance with Emerge Solutions Inc.
The PERA is designed to:
- assess the current state of your project including available resources
- consider the potential impact of your project on the organization, public and community
- rationalize whether or not there is a role for engagement and, if so, what level of engagement would make the most sense
- identify key considerations to support next steps
