Touchstones Civic Engagement programs have helped thousands of rising and established civic leaders strengthen their abilities to work collaboratively in achieving common goals for healthier and more productive society. Through custom programming that engages leaders in discussions about their individual and collective responsibilities, participants learn to appreciate the need for diverse view points and combined expertise in solving the complex problems faced by our communities. Democratic engagement is part of the American fabric, but civility and cooperation have been increasingly side-lined by partisanship and self-interest. Our leaders must work together to hear and genuinely incorporate multiple perspectives in their leadership roles.
