Featured Presentation: Beyond Inclusion – Equity in Public Engagement
How do we go beyond including diverse voices in public engagement, in order to meaningfully and equitably collaborate to address pressing issues of our time?
From 2018 to 2020, Simon Fraser University’s Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue conducted a research and consultation process to explore how to engage more diverse voices in decision-making. While we began with a framework of inclusion, participants emphasized the importance of equity—building reciprocal relationships and sharing power with communities to co-create accessible and meaningful engagement processes. In this presentation we introduce eight principles for equitable public engagement, developed from our research and share some key learnings and practical tools for engagement professionals.
Elodie Jacquet has been working with the SFU Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue and other clients on a variety of engagement processes for the past 13 years, including Canada’s World, the National Reconciliation Gatherings, the Citizens’ Dialogue on Canada’s Energy Future, the community dialogues for the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, and the Inclusion in Public Engagement consultation process.
Grace Lee has led the Centre’s signature events and engagement projects with diverse partners from different levels of governments, civil society organizations and academic institutions. She has delivered projects on a variety of topics including supporting women in conflict prevention, human rights and climate change, and the Inclusion in Public Engagement consultation process.
