“I’ve always believed in the philosophy of when you’re working with the community, you should design with the community and not for the community.”
Chief Client Officer Houda Elyagzi recently joined the Next in Nonprofits podcast with host Steve Boland to discuss Saxum Social Permitting℠. Social permitting is the process of engaging the public in order to secure support for your project. It’s about building true community engagement and stakeholder loyalty to create change. On the podcast, Houda discusses what this looks like at Saxum and illustrates how it affects our work.
Houda also shares how we strive to create an inclusive environment and prioritize real dialogue – 1,000 small conversations – in hopes of encouraging meaningful and measurable change and creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive world.
