Public Engagement in Communities Using an Equity Lens as a Reflective Practitioner: Public Engagement requires listening and facilitating challenging dialogues. In public life and with responsibility for and with the public, we need knowledge and skills necessary for addressing inequities and discrimination in decision-making. In this hybrid course, students will learn theoretical frames and facilitative practices effective for increasing social equity and fostering participation in the decisions that impact people’s lives. We will reflect on our identities, learn to guide challenging conversations, and analyze power dynamics.

During this 8-week course we will mostly engage in asychronous learning.

Please note: During this 8-week course we will mostly engage in asychronous learning. There will be THREE online (zoom) synchronous sessions where we will gather together to engage in learning and dialogue as a group. These sessions will not be lectures but rather time for us to build on our shared learning and experiences.  If enrolling in this course, please hold the following dates and times. 

  • Tuesday, March 22nd 4-6pm
  • Tuesday, April 12th 4-6pm
