Columbia Land Trust is working to conserve and care for the heart of the Northwest, the places that make the Columbia River Gorge an incredible region to live, work, raise a family, and grow old in. Pitchfork Communications partnered with Scheinberg Consulting to complete a communications assessment for the East Cascade Oak Partnership. The communications assessment revealed important insights into the communication preferences of many of the group’s stakeholders.
By interviewing stakeholders, conducting research and advising the partnership around a community survey, we learned about specific language to avoid, messages that resonate or alienate, what sources of information stakeholder groups trust, and how to effectively deliver information, or more accurately, how to learn toward a common goal.
