Ideation Workshops

Los Angeles Workshop Participants

Collaborative problem-solving

Ideation (or "idea generation") workshops bring diverse people and organizations together to solve challenges — such as reaching hard-to-count populations — through a series of creative problem solving exercises. Participants generate new ideas with an approach that emphasizes empathy and is customized to the needs of the real people they are engaging. Those new ideas lead to real, actionable commitments.

Why run a Census Solutions Workshop?

It helps partners to better understand their audience and tailor-make solutions for them; forge new public-private partnerships; and act on innovative ideas.

It helps communities understand why the Census impacts their lives and provides them with new opportunities for civic action.
