Track: Equity + Fairness
An inclusive and robust community starts with cultural competency through a diverse collection of people and habitats which operate in tandem with the natural world and without friction between one another. How do we create places where everyone belongs and places that belong to everyone? It is critical to incorporate a broad and diverse range of perspectives to create communities that are equitable and inclusive for all. The defining challenge of our time is to overcome divisiveness, to be united by our humanity; to stand as one in order to support a brighter future for us all.
This session will examine and explore the lifecycle of a project and incorporate the concepts, ideas and solutions heard in Part 1. Attendees will leave with a strong grasp of how to make equity considerations in every phase of a project and how to foster inclusiveness in the design process. Each attendee will receive a pre-designed manual to capture the best practices and lessons learned during the session.
In Part 1 of this two-part session, we will break down many of the barriers to social equity and offer solutions to creating vibrant and inclusive communities. In part 1 of the session, you will hear from social justice leaders within diverse communities about issues relating to affordable housing, access to nutritious food, public safety, community based heath care models, equitable transportation systems, and more in mini TEDx style presentations.
