Workshop: Boosting Civic Participation and Civic Competence Among Employees

Virtual Roundtable

4:00pm – 5:00pm ET / 1:00pm – 2:00pm PT

About

This workshop is part 1 of a 3-part series, based in large part on new research from NationSwell (read the report, Civics Inc., here).

Employers wield considerable influence over individual civic participation through their ability to inform and activate workers. At a minimum, they must provide employees with the opportunity to cast their vote on Election Day without penalty. But the ceiling for what companies can do to promote civic participation is considerably higher.

So what are the most effective ways to increase employee participation in voting, poll working, community organizing, and more? How can you help employees access information that will help them to participate productively and respectfully in civic life? And what can you do to support employees in managing workplace political dialogue when it inevitably happens? Based on new NationSwell research, join us for a small-group workshop to learn directly from your peers about opportunities to increase and facilitate employee civic participation during the 2024 Presidential election cycle.

This workshop follows Chatham House Rule, ensuring that participants can freely exchange ideas without attribution. Under this rule, discussions are confidential, allowing for open and candid dialogue among attendees.

NationSwell’s events and experiences are designed to bring together diverse, purpose-driven leaders and organizations for learning, inspiration, relationship-building, and societal impact.
