You’ve read Shayne Spaulding’s blog post about engaging employers. Now we would love to hear about strategies you’re using to engage employers in your SWFI program:

  • What have you found to be the most effective strategy for engaging employers? Why do you think this works well?

  • Have you included employers in advisory boards or participated on advisory boards with employers? How has this benefited your SWFI?
