Equity by Design Bootcamp Series: Oakland

  • Venue Announcement Coming Soon! (map)

Join us for an engaging weekend with a community of people interested in co-designing better, more equitable futures.

We’ll kick off the weekend on Friday with an interactive discussion over dinner to begin to lay the foundation of Equity-Centered Community Design (ECCD), exploring personal identity + power and how they relate to humility and empathy.

Saturday will take us deeper into ECCD using a local systemic challenge to explore the process, ultimately ideating and prototyping approaches for real-life application. That evening, attendees will be invited to develop and engage further topics of discussion over self-organized dinner at various local POC-owned restaurants.

Our final bit of time on Sunday will wrap up with activities and discussion of integrating ECCD into your mindset with implications for future ongoing practice.


Please note that participation in this series does not indicate certification to formally train others in ECCD and is instead intended to support participants in cultivating this mindset and practice in themselves and others in their communities. If you are interested in certification, please keep an eye out for further engagement opportunities coming later this year!

Register to attend

Ticket purchase includes Friday night dinner, Saturday breakfast and lunch, Sunday breakfast, and snacks and beverages throughout weekend. (Saturday dinner is not included in this cost).

We’re excited to gather intergenerational folks from all Narrative & Livelihood Shapers (health and healthcare, media, education, and government/public service). For this reason, we ask that each organization send a maximum of 3 people* to promote a more diverse and representative attendance. In the interest of shifting power for co-creation, we also encourage organizations to send both leadership and staff members versus one or the other.

*If you are interested in a larger group engagement for your staff, please reach out about our Leaders for Community Action & Equity workshops.
