Beyond Inclusion

  • Through concrete strategies, suggested approaches to common challenges. real-world case studies, a discussion of inclusion and equity within public engagement, and a list of list of resources, this guide for practitioners demonstrates how to put words into much needed action. 

Simon Fraser University’s Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue developed the Beyond Inclusion guide through a participatory research and consultation process from 2019-2020 involving community members, engagement practitioners, and representatives from governments and civil society. While we began with a framework of inclusion, participants emphasized the importance of equity—building reciprocal relationships and sharing power with communities to co-create accessible and meaningful engagement processes.
