Pro-equity Living Community Development (Part 2)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Inclusivity. Fairness. Healing. This 2-part, 3-hour workshop builds the sensitivities and competencies to reveal and address equity considerations and opportunities in Living Community development.  The session starts with the equity petal, steps through equity considerations in the other petals, and moves toward a holistic and inclusive model for a framing and driving toward a pro-equity approach that can be tailored to the circumstances of Living Communities in a variety of contexts. Case examples and table exercises push participants to build competencies in equity assessment, inclusive engagement, equity impact review, and the array of design and development considerations that bear on equity outcomes.

This training Part 2 of a two-part series (see Part 1 here), that also complements the Equitable and JUST Living Buildings workshop on Friday.
