Introduction to Comprehensive Plans and Equity
This workshop will provide an introduction to the vision, role, responsibilities and opportunities for government to advance racial equity via comprehensive plans. The workshop will focus on normalizing racial equity as a key value with clear definitions of key terminology, operationalizing racial equity via new policies and institutional practice, and organizing, both internally and in partnership with other institutions and the community. We will introduce examples of integrating racial equity into comprehensive plans. This workshop will launch the series, and anyone who is anticipating participating in future sessions should be encouraged to attend this session.
