    Policy engagement refers to the process of actively involving members of underserved communities, who have personal experience with a specific policy issue, in the organization′s use of equity assessment methods to ensure their feedback and perspectives are incorporated.

    1. Develop a community advisory board to gather feedback and recommendations for policy improvement – promotes inclusivity and equal representation.
    2. Implement focus groups or surveys with underserved individuals to assess the impact of policies on their communities – provides direct input from those affected.
    3. Host town hall meetings to encourage open dialogue and collaboration with community members – fosters transparency and accountability.
    4. Connect with local advocacy organizations and seek input from their members – strengthens relationships and builds trust.
    5. Utilize community-based participatory research methods to involve community members in data collection and analysis – ensures their perspectives are accurately represented.
    6. Establish regular communication channels with underserved communities to provide updates and solicit feedback on policy progress – improves accountability and understanding of community needs.
    7. Offer training opportunities for community members to participate in policy decision-making processes – promotes diverse perspectives and inclusivity.
    8. Provide accessible and culturally competent information about policies and their potential impact – enables informed and meaningful participation.
    9. Encourage a culture of inclusivity within the organization to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for community engagement – promotes long-term partnerships and sustainable solutions.
    10. Prioritize and consider feedback from underserved individuals in policy decision-making processes – ensures equity and creates positive impact.

    CONTROL QUESTION: How can community engagement or feedback from underserved individuals with lived expertise on a given policy problem be integrated meaningfully in the organizations use of equity assessment methods?

    Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) for 10 years from now:

    By 2031, our organization will have successfully incorporated the perspectives and lived experiences of underserved individuals with expertise on a given policy issue into our equity assessment methods. We will have a robust and inclusive community engagement process that allows for meaningful feedback and participation from those most impacted by the policy problem.

    Our organization will have developed a framework for incorporating community voices into equity assessments, ensuring that marginalized communities are not just consulted, but also have decision-making power in the policy-making process. We will work closely with community leaders and organizations to identify areas where equity assessments are needed and actively seek out input from those who are often left out of policy discussions.

    Through this process, our equity assessments will be more representative and reflective of the diverse perspectives and needs of the communities we serve. We will use this data and feedback to inform our policies and programs, ensuring that they are inclusive and equitable for all.

    Furthermore, our organization will have built strong partnerships with community-based organizations, grassroots leaders, and advocacy groups to amplify the voices of underserved individuals and advocate for policy changes that promote equity and justice.

    By effectively integrating community engagement and feedback into our equity assessment methods, our organization will lead the way in promoting equitable policies and outcomes for all individuals, especially those who have been historically marginalized and silenced. Together, we will create a more just and inclusive society for future generations to come.

    Policy Engagement Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:

    Client Situation:

    ABC Organization is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting equity and social justice for marginalized communities. The organization has been actively working on various policy issues related to housing, education, and healthcare. As part of their commitment to equity, ABC organization has been using equity assessment methods to evaluate the impact of policies on different communities. However, they have recognized the need to amplify the voices of underserved individuals with lived expertise on the policy issues being addressed.

    Consulting Methodology:

    To address the client′s challenge, our consulting firm developed a comprehensive methodology that integrated community engagement and feedback from underserved individuals into existing equity assessment methods. The methodology involved the following steps:

    1. Identifying Lived Experts: We started by identifying individuals who have direct personal experience with the policy problems at hand. This included individuals from marginalized communities, as well as those who have worked closely with these communities.

    2. Training and Capacity Building: Once the lived experts were identified, we provided them with training on equity assessment methods, including how to evaluate the impact of policies on marginalized communities.

    3. Tailored Assessment Tools: We then worked with the lived experts to develop or modify existing equity assessment tools to ensure they were culturally sensitive and inclusive.

    4. Community Engagement: Our team organized focus groups and community forums to engage with marginalized communities and gather their feedback on the policy issues. These sessions were designed to be accessible and inclusive, allowing for open dialogue and active participation.

    5. Analysis and Integration: The data collected from the lived experts and community feedback was analyzed and integrated into the equity assessment methods being used by ABC organization. This ensured that the perspectives and experiences of underserved individuals were considered in the evaluation process.


    1. Lived Expert Database: We created a database of individuals with lived expertise that ABC organization could continue to engage with for future policy assessments.

    2. Culturally Sensitive Assessment Tools: Our team developed or modified existing assessment tools to ensure they were inclusive and accurate in evaluating the impact of policies on marginalized communities.

    3. Community Feedback Report: A detailed report was provided to ABC organization, summarizing the feedback received from the underserved communities.

    4. Training and Capacity Building Materials: We provided materials and resources to ABC organization on equity assessment methods, to ensure they were equipped to continue integrating lived expertise in their future assessments.

    Implementation Challenges:

    1. Trust and Inclusivity: One of the major challenges we faced was building trust and inclusivity with the lived experts and marginalized communities. Many individuals from these communities are distrustful of organizations and may feel hesitant to share their experiences. Therefore, we focused on creating a safe and inclusive environment for engagement.

    2. Accessibility: We recognized the need to make our engagement sessions accessible for individuals with disabilities or those with limited English proficiency. To address this, we provided interpreters and ensured that the venues were accessible.


    1. Number of Lived Experts Engaged: The number of individuals with lived expertise who were engaged in the assessment process was a key performance indicator, ensuring that a diverse range of perspectives were considered.

    2. Community Feedback Response Rate: The response rate of the community engagement sessions was monitored to assess the level of community involvement and participation.

    3. Impact on Equity Assessment Results: The ultimate goal was to see tangible changes in the equity assessment results, indicating the integration of lived expertise had a positive impact on the evaluation process.

    Management Considerations:

    1. Resource Allocation: The integration of community engagement and lived expertise into equity assessment methods may require additional resources, including time and funding. ABC organization needed to consider this when planning future policy assessments.

    2. Ongoing Engagement: It is important for ABC organization to continue engaging with the lived experts and marginalized communities to maintain trust and ensure their perspectives are considered in future policy work.
