Community Engagement and Outreach

Community Engagement and Outreach
Nationwide, Keen Independent has successfully welcomed tens of thousands of
diverse individuals to give insights on initiatives regarding diversity, equity and inclusion, public procurement, performing arts, arts and cultural programming and venues, environmental and conservation messaging, and other important topics.
We often draw from the principles of community-based social marketing to build awareness among potential participants and initiate calls for action. To build buy-in
and trust, we use many methods to identify key stakeholders and engage diverse communities even those that are difficult to reach. Keen Independent has
multilingual capabilities.
