Governments and organizations are increasingly engaging the public to better meet the needs of the communities they serve. Evidence shows that public engagement leads to more innovative ideas, better decisions, greater public support of policies and stronger democracies.

The growing field of public engagement needs professionals with a wide range of skills and experiences, including project management, event planning, outreach , communications, policy analysis, strong interpersonal skills, passion for connecting with communities, fluency in multiple languages and inter-cultural literacy.
