Stakeholder Mapping: Identifying And Analyzing Underrepresented Stakeholders


This course introduces a powerful, transparent process to identify and analyze key stakeholders for any engagement project – a critical step in an ethical and equity-centered engagement design. After understanding the theory and purpose, participants use short cases to practice stakeholder mapping. They learn how to identify and analyze the full spectrum of stakeholders, with special emphasis on underrepresented stakeholders who need additional outreach/support to ensure inclusive engagement. For each case, the group learns how to “clean” and finalize the map, and then discusses implementation challenges and how to overcome them.

Learning outcomes:

  • Challenge: Design and implement equity-centered engagement processes for increasingly diverse communities 
  • Critical to success: Robust and comprehensive stakeholder identification and analysis (“stakeholder mapping”)
  • Course combines theory, practice, instructions, templates
  • Participants leave ready to conduct thorough, defensible stakeholder mapping that identifies underrepresented stakeholders, and use the results to plan and successfully implement inclusive engagement
