Community and Stakeholder Engagement

PART OF: Public Relations

Course description

The value of relationship building and corporate social responsibility has gained traction in recent years and most organizations now recognize the direct impact that stakeholders and communities can have on business operations. A passive approach is no longer accepted as the standard methodology when launching new initiatives that affect wider audiences. The question is no longer “should we engage?” but rather when and how to engage. Communicators increasingly need to be able to identify and analyze these groups in order to plan strategic engagement activities that advance the organization’s mission.

This course will examine key concepts in community and stakeholder engagement and how effective relationship building can lead to communication and organizational success. You will learn about internal and external stakeholder groups in different contexts, and examine the various methods and techniques used to facilitate community and stakeholder engagement. There will also be discussion of topics such as ethics, planning, relationship building, evaluation and conflict management.

Learning objectives

  • Define community and stakeholder engagement. 
  • Apply the appropriate techniques and methods for successful community and stakeholder engagement. 
  • Create an effective engagement strategy by using the planning process.
  • Evaluate engagement activities and relationships.
  • Recognize and respond to stakeholder issues and conflict.
