Charlotte Encore - "Evaluating P2 to Address Historic Disenfranchisement and Empower Communities"
Tuesday, August 11th, 11am PDT / 2pm EDT
While many governments and other public bodies portray their decision-making processes as "participatory", research has found that many of the practices actually perpetuate social inequalities and power structures. In this webinar version of a popular presentation from the 2019 IAP2 North American Conference, Allison Smith and Daniel DeCaro of the University of Louisville (Kentucky) reprise their session on being aware of these inequalities and addressing them.
Change begins with us: A message from the IAP2 Canada Board of Directors
The Black Lives Matter movement across the USA, Canada, and around the world transcends geographical boundaries and has brought Canada's own racial history and current status of inequality and discrimination into focus. As the national body for the community and stakeholder engagement sector, racism and systemic biases are antithetical to the mission and values of IAP2.
We know that your lives are being turned upside down. Plans that you have made are changing and it seems that every time you turn around there is something new being said. Feeling overwhelmed is an understatement!
We want to help. A list of resources has been gathered to support P2 practitioners and supporters of P2, which is in no way exhaustive!
