Table 2. Stakeholder participation in the series of workshops (left three columns) compared to participation in the workshop analyzed in this study (right four columns). Stakeholder groups are arranged in order of mean days attended per person, which loosely represents each stakeholder group’s commitment to the series of workshops. “Number of speakers” is the number of participants who spoke during recorded workshop discussions. A “speaking turn” was counted each time a new speaker started talking or when a speaker changed topics.
