Changing what Community Engagement Looks Like: It’s Our Responsibility

10:30 AM - 11:45 AM: Session 1

From Public Meetings and Community Forums to Creative Citymaking and Placemaking, improving community engagement requires more than just a change in words. We'll discuss the importance of setting a high standard for community engagement that centers the responsibility for equitable community engagement on us, the practitioners and works toward ensuring all voices are heard. This is an interactive workshop, so come ready to share your horror stories of poor community engagement and your best practices on doing it well. We’ll ask tough questions and ask for honest answers with the hope that you’ll go away with some action steps to creating a more equitable engagement process in your work.
