Scaling the Ladder: Engagement Programs as Tools for Sustainability
November 20 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm ESTFree
Using examples from McGill University, this webinar covers how practitioners can use the ladder of engagement can turn small changes into meaningful, collective action. While there is often a debate on whether to focus effort on individual behavioral change or systemic change, staff and student engagement programs can be designed in a way to achieve both. Topics will include how to build the ladder of engagement, recruiting more than just the usual suspects, and key factors for success.
