Winning the hearts and mind of potential clients, residents, voters, constituents or stakeholders begin and end with outreaching to them and educating them about a specific topics. The desired outcome, whether its winning a political campaign or educating the public about a specific health or social issue, is reached through the direct engagement and understanding of the various demographics within the target communities. Assessing the needs of the target population of outreach and education efforts helps to identify any barriers that exist and how to best create a tool or intervention that fits the population’s needs. Assessing the needs of a community could help explain what is needed to make programs more available and effectual at reaching the target population. Equally important is the process of engaging stakeholders to help increase the depth of knowledge about their needs and to get ongoing feedback throughout the evolution of a project. Engaging different stakeholders allows for inclusion of diverse perspectives, community buy-in, and can lead to improved intervention outcomes within diverse cultures and contexts.
