What is unique about the Community Think Tank?
The Think Tank creates a socially, culturally, and economically
diverse community of problem-solvers involving people who are not
usually included in high-level, complex problem-solving. Its process
of structured inquiry respects knowledge from many levels of experience—low-wage
workers, management, community workers, ministers, youth, academics,
policy experts, and students (among others). While many community
forums adopt a rhetoric of complaint and blame, Think Tanks seek
both strong rival hypotheses and diverse interpretations of problems
in order to explore options and test solutions. Think Tanks situate
problems and solutions in their local contexts—in a workplace,
a city, an economic trend, or an ideology.
