TOOLBOX 2018: Peer Networking Series on Local Planning and Implementation
Social Equity Work Session

Friday, December 7 from 12:00 - 3:00 pm

The Puget Sound Regional Council is pleased to offer an extended session on the topic of Social Equity on Friday, December 7, 2018 from 12:00 – 3:00 pm in the PSRC Boardroom.

As the region plans for 2050, how can regional policies and actions ensure that all people can attain the resources and opportunities that improve their quality of life? Do current plans and policies disproportionately impact different populations? How can the updated regional plan, VISION 2050, better integrate an equity lens to ensure all residents in the region have opportunities?

This work session will take a “deep dive” into this complex topic, with a three-hour session that includes an overview of social equity evaluation tools, including a new regional analysis of neighborhoods that may face higher risk of displacement due to redevelopment and other factors, and small-group breakouts to begin to evaluate social equity in existing regional policy.

Please RSVP online if you are planning to attend. We have limited space and cannot guarantee attendance without an RSVP.

An agenda will be available closer to the work session.

Bring your lunch! Water will be provided.

Directions to the PSRC offices are available online.

If you would like to join remotely, please register as a remote attendee. Please note that the breakout group discussions will not be available via the webinar and remote attendees are not eligible for CM credits.
