The Meskwaki Workforce Development Department is hosting a community survey to help gauge, engage, and mobilize future economic efforts within the community.
The department is seeking Tribal community members to assist in the process by filling out a short community survey. The survey will take less than 2 minutes to complete and responses are strictly confidential.
All Tribal community members age 10 and above are invited to participate. Those who fill out the survey will be entered into a drawing for gift cards, 15 winners total.

The deadline for completing the survey is January 29th. Winners of the prizes will be announced on February 3rd via Facebook and on the Meskwaki.org website.
The survey, created by Al Nygard Consulting, is a building block in understanding the environment of a Native community. Having worked with more than 60 Native communities spanning more than 15 years, the consulting firm has built “The Art of the Native View” which is a program specializing in culturally sensitive approaches to management, planning, and development as they relate specifically to Native American communities. The questions may seem random upon first reflection, but they are a proven first step in the development of a framework to help empower Native communities like ours.
1. What is Meskwaki Workforce Development doing?
We are inviting our Tribal community members to complete this brief survey to help us scale our environment through the lens of our people to effectively engage and mobilize our workforce and economic strategies.
2. How will the results of this survey be used?
The results will impact how we move forward, balance areas of strength with those where improvement is needed, and to be more impactful and inclusive in our community engagement.
3. Why is this important?
This process is important because it will allow our community to voice their opinion on how they view our current environment. We will learn about the attributes of the community that influence our engagement with one another and help us improve and empower our community and tribal leaders so we can effectively move forward with our economic and workforce goals.
Thank you for your time in completing this survey and sharing your valuable input.
