Description: What are the roles of identity, power, and equity in community-centered collaboration?

In this interactive full-day workshop, participants will examine their roles as community members and organizational leaders by:
- defining key terms through language setting
- learning the fundamentals of the Equity-Centered Community Design framework
- reflecting on history and healing to inform context
- defining the power of oneself and team dynamics in supporting authentic community-led change, and
- examining how to apply Equity-Centered Community Design strategies and practices to address real-world community challenges more equitably.
This workshop will also explore the reality that systems produce what they are designed to produce, and that we can and must redesign for equity and justice.
