Shine the Light Nonprofit Forums hosts Community Engagement: Authentic Voices Really Matter with Jonathan Parker with Fellowship Greenville. 

What will it take to make Greenville the most curious city in the world? The answer although simple is profoundly complex: we must value different voices and be curious about what we do not know about. If we want to have community engagement, it will start with the decision to be curious about the very community we want to engage. Yet it is not enough to just be curious individually even though this is vital. Our community and organizations need to begin to model what it looks like to be curious without being reckless or careless. 

In this first installment of the Shine the Light forums, we will look at how to take the first step in Community Engagement that demonstrates the belief that authentic voices really matter. We will look at the topics and issues that create barriers in our community and your organization, and how you can break-through these barriers through the power of curiosity. We will make space for information, conversation, and exercises to ensure we view community engagement from multiple vantage points. By utilizing the Art of the Conversation, we will answer questions like: What are you not talking about that you should be? Who’s voice is going unheard in your organization? Are you leading and engaging with your heart or your head? Come ready to be inspired and empowered, and to walk away energized to engage your community and organization.
