Register now for this deep dive into approaches that work.

Equitable EngagementLocal government staff recognize the value of hearing from all members of their community -- or at least their responsibility to pursue it. Yet many of us struggle to effectively reach and/or keep the attention of anyone other than the usual suspects. Whether it's during a planning process, at the implementation stage, or getting feedback on projects and ideas, it can be a challenge to get the quantity and quality engagement that is representative of your community -- and that sets you up for long-term success.


On this webinar, we'll walk through the tactics you can employ to build a more diverse choir for your community’s work.

Join this webinar if you want to:

  • Think through which organizations in your community you could leverage to reach a more diverse audience and how to do that
  • Learn how to utilize various communications tools and techniques to engage the broadest audience possible
  • Find ways to integrate simple practices into daily routines and ongoing work
  • Hear examples from local governments that have pursued equitable engagement strategies
  • Ask questions about your unique challenges and opportunities (we'll leave plenty of time for Q&A)


If you attended our "Beyond the Usual Suspects" presentation at APA's National Planning Conference recently, this webinar will offer a deeper dive on the topic along with specific examples.
