IAP2 April Learning Webinar

Tuesday, April 10, 2018, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (PDT)

Have you applied for the 2018 IAP2 Core Values Awards yet? Here's a chance to get inspired with winners of the 2017 Core Values Awards!

Once again this month, we're excited to present the winners of the 2017 Core Values Awards, presented last fall at the North American Conference in Denver. The Tennessee Department of Transportation won the IAP2 USA Project of the Year (General Category) for its long-range transportation strategy that worked to address an $8-billion backlog of projects.

The Liard Aboriginal Women's Society (LAWS) in Watson Lake, Yukon, in partnership with Beringia Community Planning, won the IAP2 Canada award for Indigenous Engagement. LAWS and Beringia set up a process to address a growing problem of assaults on Indigenous women and girls in the community, which brought together Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth to raise awareness and work through solutions.

What made these projects award-worthy? What caught the judges' attention? How can you apply what they did and learned to your own work? Come join us and find out!
