    Much like work/life balance, most parks and recreation agencies miss the mark with diversity and inclusion. This work session with facilitated discussion and best and leading practice sharing will leave participants energized and ready to begin a journey to building inclusive language and behaviors into their key daily functions. From tough discussion on diversity to program planning, we will tackle specific ways to move diversity and inclusion initiatives to full integration in your agency.

    Social Equity is one of NRPA’s Three Pillars and this session gets at it from both a workforce development and programming lens while building skills to help practitioners with bias and equipping them with language to begin these tough discussion back home. This session was submitted for 2016 and well received but originally build as 2.25 and deserves that timing as it’s a complex subject matter and if this is a key pillar - NRPA should consider giving it that space. However, we adjusted.

    Competencies:

    • Identify why diversity and a diverse workforce and service offering is imperative; 
    • Develop the emotional fortitude to have difficult discussions around diversity and inclusion; and
    • Implement some initial tools for recognizing and building an inclusive work environment.
  • Inclusive Outreach for Equitable Results: Using a Logic Model for the Get Moving Initiative

    Contains 5 Component(s), 0.1 credits offered Recorded On: 09/26/2017

    This session is a fusion of equity and results-based accountability, with two key themes: (1) inclusive outreach strategies to effectively reach underserved communities, and (2) using performance measurement tools for equitable results. We will profile Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Get Moving Initiative, which used equity goals and a logic model as tools to guide and track inclusive outreach strategies for its community fitness-grant program.

We will profile Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Get Moving Initiative, which used equity goals and a logic model as tools to guide and track inclusive outreach strategies for its community fitness-grant program. 

    As our country grows increasingly diverse, parks and recreation professionals must enhance their toolkits for inclusive outreach and equitable programming. Additionally, public agencies are under increasing pressure to be effective in their work, and to add analytical rigor to their efforts, in the form of results-based accountability. This workshop will provide an example of using one tool for performance measurement (the logic model) to effectively guide inclusive outreach strategies.

    Competencies:

    • Participants will be able to use community-level data to set equity goals;
    • Participants will be able to understand and apply innovative inclusive outreach strategies; and
    • Participants will be able to develop and use a logic model to track performance of outreach strategies.
