Fairness. Opportunity. Inclusivity.  This session will push participants to build competencies with equity assessment, inclusive engagement, equity impact review, and design and development considerations that bear on equity outcomes.  After quickly unpacking Living Building Equity Petal requirements and the equity dimensions of other petals, the session will present a few core equity and social justice principles and approaches relevant in any settings to advance buildings that response to context, expand opportunity, and reconcile to long time horizons.  Using case examples, peer interaction, and discussion, participants will advance awareness, cultivate sensitivities, strengthen analytic skills, and foster practice improvements toward pro-equity Living Buildings.

This training complements the Pro-Equity Living Community Development workshops on Thursday.
