Join us for the second of two Community Engagement Conversations hosted by the Office of Economic Engagement focusing on issues of racial equity, the social determinants of health, and COVID-19.
Prior to the panel discussion, the program will begin with opening remarks from key community partners, the presentation of the Community Engaged Award winners, and an Ignatian Examen, providing attendees with a moment of prayerful reflection.
Our panelists will consider the broad and significant impacts the pandemic has created and exposed across various sectors. Learn about the approaches their organizations are taking to respond to the public health crisis while advancing equity and justice through their community engagement efforts. Whether addressing public health policies and procedures or leveraging more intentional and strategic programs to elevate opportunities through partnership, panelists will discuss the critical role that community engagement must play in current and future efforts to advance justice in public health and equity.
