Nov. 7 Seminar, How Governments and Corporations Create Effective Social Change

By: Cienna Madrid   Published 2:25 pm / November 2, 2017

At 10:30 a.m. on Nov. 7, join the Boise State design ethnography program and guest speaker Kevin Preister for an engaging talk on how nonprofit and for-profit organizations create development projects – and assess projects – that positively impact the communities in which they reside. These projects can range in scope from recreation to energy, water, and social service delivery.

This talk is free and open to the public; it will be held in the College of Innovation and Design (second floor of the Albertsons Library).

Presiter has 35 years of experience crafting innovative solutions for government and corporate clients. For the last four years, he has assisted the International Right of Way Association in changing its paradigm for community engagement to incorporate Social Ecology methods. He also has a Science Foundation grant with Purdue University’s School of Mechanical Engineering to conduct community impact assessments, public involvement programs and issue management projects.
