Are you seeking to build meaningful partnerships and trust through your community engagement efforts?

The Centering Community Organizational Self-Assessment is designed to help leaders in government, nonprofits and philanthropy evaluate what is or isn’t being done to center community.

The Assessment includes ratings for statements such as:

  • We share data, information and financial resources with community.
  • We acknowledge how community history impacts our collaborative processes and outcomes.
  • We compensate people with lived experience for their time, energy, stories and intellectual property.

There are no right or wrong answers. The tool is meant to start the conversation about what can be done to avoid harm and engage more meaningfully with communities.

In addition, we have provided a Community Member Survey. The survey helps to support a conversation among everyone that is collaborating to gauge where there is agreement and where there might be a disconnect between organizational and community perspectives.

This resource was created in partnership with community leaders who coauthored the Community Bill of Rights.
