This workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to learn more about the theory and practice behind engaging equity-seeking populations in your community (e.g., rural youth, members of the LGBTQ2+ community, Indigenous communities etc.), identify the community connections and relationships that are required for effective engagement, and share resources and learnings with each other. Through a mix of presentations, interactive exercises, and reflection, you'll learn tangible ways that you can engage these populations in a safe, respectful, and collaborative way.
