How do we go beyond including diverse voices in public engagement, in order to meaningfully and equitably collaborate to address pressing issues of our time? In 2018, Simon Fraser University’s Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue was commissioned by IAP2 Canada to write a research paper on inclusion in public engagement. Following that project, the same team delved into a year and a half of additional research and community focus groups to put the research to the test and explore how to engage more diverse voices in decision-making.
While we began with a framework of inclusion, participants emphasized the importance of equity—building reciprocal relationships and sharing power with communities to co-create accessible and meaningful engagement processes. In this interactive webinar the research team will introduce eight principles for equitable public engagement, developed from our research, before sharing case studies that reflect real-world constraints and inviting participants to discuss challenges and strategies for success from their own experiences.
