Measuring “Polarization and Consensus” Within Community Engagement

Host: John Spady, Seattle, Founder of the National Dialogue Network (http://ncdd.org/10940), Twitter: @JSpady; Facebook: /JSpady

Participants: Amber Rivera, Bruce Poinsette, Miro Merrill, Rachel Damgen, Kathryn Langstaff

Notes (limited):
1) Capturing routine feedback of participant values and opinions during broad scale community engagement provides unexpected and significant insights into what participants have in common and which demographic/psychographic groups of participant were more or less likely to engage and participate.

2) Feedback from participants after face-to-face and online engagement, and its unbiased analysis afterwards, improves understanding of the effectiveness of engagement, and engagement strategies, within diverse communities.
