“Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance.”
– Verna Myers
The 2019 IAP2 North American Conference (Sept. 4 – 6 in Charlotte, NC) promises to be much more than sessions and presentations. You don’t want to miss Day One — Wednesday — with its field trips and workshops!
Plan to attend the workshop on Race, Equity and Inclusion, to gain practical tools for taking that step past diversity and focusing on inclusion. In the Driver’s Seat goes into the relationship between P2 and transportation; and — new this year, the P2 for Decision-Makers Workshop, goes into the how-to, why-to, when-to and when not to engage the public on policy and project decisions.
Something else new this year: SESSION THEMES — so you can make the most of your time!
|Tips, Tools, Techniques
Race, Equity, & Inclusion
Advocating for Good P2
|Cities & Policing

Politics & P2
Empathy & Sensitivity
|Creating a Culture of P2
Planning for Good P2
Whatever themes you choose, it’s all about “Leveraging P2 to Create Thriving Communities”. The Schedule-at-a-Glance shows what’s in store, like The Art and Science of Online Engagement— designing a process and making sure “seldom-heard” communities are included. Learn about the campaign to spread the message of P2 far and wide through The Ambassador Program; or learn how to overcome built-in racial inequity in P2 processes with Let’s Talk Race: Operationalizing Racial Equity Principles Within Community Engagement.
But unless you have money to burn, DON’T DELAY! The early-bird deadline is Monday, July 1, so register here, and save!
