ABAG welcomes Paul Schmitz back to Baltimore for an interactive workshop to help funders explore how community engagement can advance their and their grantees' results.

Drawing from his 2016 Stanford Social Innovation Review article, Community Engagement Matters (Now More Than Ever), and community engagement toolkit, Paul will share tools and lead participants through activities to help you consider your purpose, definitions, and approaches of engagement in order to better to do work with communities, not just for or to communities.

This workshop launches ABAG’s Democracy and the Social Sector series of programs designed to stimulate conversations and action on democracy-strengthening activities at the local, state and federal level to promote effective philanthropy and build stronger communities.

About our Facilitator:

Paul Schmitz builds the collective leadership of organizations and communities to achieve greater impact through his consulting firm, Leading Inside Out, and his role as Senior Advisor to The Collective Impact Forum. Paul is the former CEO of Public Allies, where he helped more than 5,500 diverse young adults begin careers working for community and social change. He shared his lessons from that work in the book, Everyone Leads: Building Leadership from the Community Up. Paul is a faculty member of The Asset-Based Community Development Institute, was a social innovation advisor to the Obama White House, and has been named three separate years to The Nonprofit Times list of the 50 most influential nonprofit leaders in America. He lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with his wife and five children.
