A Seat at Whose Table? Actualizing Equity in Advisory Committees
Centering the expertise and lived experiences of those most impacted is fundamental to actualizing equity around any issue. Thanks to generations of tenacious leaders, institutions and government bodies are increasingly integrating community members in more advisory committees around policy and decision-making. Still situated in structures built by and for white supremacy, how can community leverage these openings to build power and reorient priorities, rather than extract uncompensated intellectual and emotional labor in service of incremental change?
Join us as we explore powerful examples and co-create new ideas to fundamentally change these processes and extract real and lasting value for our communities.
