As student leaders you often have the opportunity - and responsibility - to engage with community partners. This comes in many forms: direct partnerships for programs, participants in different events, experts in various areas, and others. During this workshop we will discuss pitfalls and pathways to effective partnerships, highlighting some of our research in Detroit.
Please come join other BLI fellows to listen to Dr. Soderstrom's lecture on community engagement. Professor Sara Soderstrom is an assistant professor of Organizational Studies and Program in the Environment. She studies how individuals within organizations mobilize others, develop coalitions, and access key decision makers when they are trying to implement sustainability initiatives.
