The primary action I will propose to take is to is to educate the public on the Pipeline construction with the intent of positively increasing the affects on the stakeholders. The list of stakeholders involved in the pipeline contraction is extensive. Stakeholders include the construction company building the pipeline, residents and citizens in the surrounding area of construction, energy, legal, and governmental experts involved in the decisions as well as the citizens and consumers of the United States. Everyone is affected by the construction of this pipeline, and focusing my internship efforts on educating the public about the construction of the pipeline will best benefit the stakeholders.
I will use a few different deliverables when focusing my internship efforts on educating the public about the pipeline construction. I will create a positive social media hashtag to generate awareness and recognition for the pipeline construction and the benefits it brings to the stakeholders. To acknowledge stakeholder concerns as well as look out for their well being I will produce a commercial or public service announcement addressing the plans of the pipeline construction and inform the public with all the necessary details regarding construction. I also hope to schedule a press conference facilitated by an executive with extensive knowledge on the pipeline construction to speak to the stakeholders and the general public interested in the information. If a mass produced press conference is not obtainable, I will organize a Facebook live feed for those interested.
I will need as much support from my boss as possible. Full support is needed because my efforts to educate the public will be maximized with the help of my boss and their resources. I assume my boss is more connected and knowledgable about the pipeline construction and their support will be extremely valued. In my attempt to persuade my boss to give me support on my internship focus, I will state the knowledge he holds that will positively impact my internship focus. I will approach my boss in a professional manner, respect their opinions and be grateful for any support they offer to give me during my internship.
I will persuade my boss and the board of directors for the Department of Energy that my internship focus needs to be on educating the public about the pipeline construction, because the public currently has a negative view on the construction. I will inform my boss and the board of directors that educating the public will refocus their perception and hopefully create a positive outlook towards the pipeline construction. My boss and board of directors should be persuaded to allow me to focus my internship on educating the public because it will benefit them as a result of stakeholder impact. Their will be a positive impact on the stakeholders by educating the public about the pipeline construction, thus benefitting my boss and the board of directors from the Department of Energy. I will use the rhetorical appeals of pathos and logos to persuade my boss and the board of directors from the Department of Energy. I will use pathos and appeal to their emotions as well as use sound logic to persuade them in the form of logos.
