Add to Calendar   10/15/2020 12:00 PM 10/15/2020 01:00 PM America/New_York NOACA Lunch and Learn: Equitable Public Engagement

 

The Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) is offering a series of Lunch and Learns starting this summer! Lunch and Learns bring together people from diverse backgrounds and organizations in an informal atmosphere to collaborate and learn how you can drive personal, team and business development to the next level. These events are offered every third Thursday of the month from noon to 1:00 p.m. The sessions in the Lunch and Learn series are all part of the Long-Range Plan discussion.

 

Equitable Public Engagement

An equitable, inclusive community engagement approach helps ensure that the people most affected by a transportation project have a say in the decisions that affect their lives. It is especially important to engage those who have been historically left out of these conversations (e.g., low-income people, communities of color, recent immigrants, and speakers of English as a second language). The panelists for this session will discuss how being aware and accepting of cultural differences can improve the process to make projects run more smoothly.

 

Panelists:

• Nelson Beckford, Program Director, Neighborhood Revitalization & Engagement, Cleveland Foundation

• Jejuana Brown, Program Manager, GCP Equity and Inclusion, Greater

• Nicholas Gorris, P.E., Deputy Engineer, Geauga County Engineer's Office

• Joyce Huang, Director of Planning and Placemaking, Mid-Town CDC

• Richard Wong, Planning Director, City of Cleveland Heights
