When prosperity doesn’t reach everyone: A community workshop
If the past 18 months have taught us anything, it’s that we are all connected. COVID-19 has exposed the Puget Sound region’s stark inequities and shown us that disparities surrounding race, gender and geography don’t just affect certain groups — they threaten our economy, undermine our democracy and tear at the fabric that holds our communities together.

Join Civic Commons, The Evergrey and community leaders for a virtual workshop focused on centering the Scorecard for Shared Prosperity in local recovery efforts. The Scorecard for Shared Prosperity is an easy-to-use online tool that tracks collective progress around economic prosperity and equitable distribution of opportunity.

This event will not be a passive panel discussion. After getting a quick overview of the Scorecard, attendees will break into groups and dive deeper into one of three dimensions — individuals, households and communities — to make sense of the data and identify the most pressing areas for improvement. Dimension experts will be on hand to answer questions and provide insight into their area of expertise.

These small-group conversations will result in a resource guide that will be shared following the workshop and help inform the next Scorecard update.

We’ll be joined by these dimension experts:

• Individuals: Dennis Worsham, interim director of Public Health — Seattle & King County
• Households: Andrea Caupain Sanderson, CEO of Byrd Barr Place
• Communities: Marie Kurose, CEO of the Workforce Development Council of Seattle-King County

Event co-hosted by Caitlin Moran, Content and Communications Manager of Civic Commons and Michael Brown, Chief Architect of Civic Commons.
