Building an Equitable and Inclusive Organization

In this deep-dive interactive workshop, Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy will describe essential approaches to inclusive programming and building an inclusive organization, such as building relationships, breaking down institutional barriers, meeting community needs, modeling authentic community engagement, gaining staff and leadership buy-in, and institutionalizing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) baselines.

Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) will describe its approach to DEI through its racial equity action plan, department wide implementation and alignment with external investment. The plan includes MPRB's unique approach to ensuring capital improvements and programmatic investments do not reinforce historical and current racial disparities by directing funding where it's needed the greatest.


  • Strategize with colleagues on how to advance racial equality in park systems.
  • Gain an understanding of the steps for achieving race equality.
  • Recognize how success is dependent on inclusion of everyone.
