This session will invite practitioners to reflect on their own experiences as both participants and facilitators of public participation processes to explore inclusive public participation strategies and practices that engage traditionally under-served groups with an emphasis on ethnic minorities and immigrant populations. The session will equip participants on tools and strategies to:

  • Understand who is in their community and issues that matter to traditionally marginalized communities
  • Determine assets of community members to ensure effective inclusive engagement
  • Design public engagement efforts to support inclusive public participation
  • Build relationships and trust to sustain the impact of public participation efforts

Join us for an interactive session, where you can fill your toolbox with some new, innovative and effective public engagement techniques that will help you host better, powerful conversations, achieve objectives and create momentum positive change.
