Women's Bureau Strategic Community Outreach Study


  • The purpose of this study is to document current promising community engagement practices for the Department of Labor's Women's Bureau, to conceptualize a strategic community engagement model, and to develop a framework for assessing progress and effectiveness.

This study aims to understand and describe the range of engagement approaches and activities currently being undertaken and the extent to which they vary by the factors outlined above, and to develop a framework for incorporating variation as needed and assessing the progress and effectiveness of the Women’s Bureau community engagement model.

Key Components:

  • Conduct a cross-office analysis to gain an understanding of current community engagement approaches and identify promising practices.
  • Develop a logic model and theory of change for community engagement activities, including measurable indicators to assess outcomes of the activities.
