Hope by Design: Making Progress on Equity
Track: Equity + Fairness

When organizations seek to provide intentional equity in a green development project or program, what does that look like? What are the distribution, procedural and structural barriers that challenge the focus on fair and just practices? How have vision and partnerships supported progress? This panel will draw from public agencies, private development, community development programs and design firm perspectives. An interactive workshop will encourage audience members to evaluate opportunities on their projects to build strategies for equity.
