Plan With, Not For: Why Community Engagement Is Essential

Join the Urban Institute and the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth for the third installment in a week-long online forum that explores a pivotal challenge facing cities: how to achieve equity in the digital age.

When resident voices are placed at the forefront, cities’ innovative technology policies can be more inclusive. What does community engagement look like in practice, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, when people cannot communicate or convene in traditional ways? Panelists from community and nonprofit organizations and government will highlight effective community engagement strategies in this moment and explain how they’re adapting.
