WEBINAR | Advancing More Equitable Community Engagement Before, During & After COVID-19

community engagement workshop

As our communities grapple with the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, new methods and tools for online and remote public engagement have been put to the test. At the same time, there has been a growing recognition of the need for more flexible, transparent and equitable community engagement processes — a need that predates the pandemic and one that will remain after it is over.

Now more than ever, community engagement must be agile and flexible, and it must reach those who have continually been left behind, left out, or too busy to participate. Moving forward, how do we take advantage of what this moment is teaching us to strengthen engagement, and perhaps fundamentally redefine it?

On July 22, 2020 at 2:00 pm EDT panelists came together to explore how community engagement is adapting and changing in the face of the pandemic and the demand for racial justice, and what this should mean for its future evolution.
