**This event was rescheduled from Saturday, Feb 9 to Tuesday, March 12 due to predicted severe weather.
More and more organizations and communities are working toward being “inclusive.” But what does that entail? Having a statement at the end of a job announcement to encourage communities of color, queer people, and women to apply can be a start, but how do policies, environment, and culture support this invitation? How do they fail to support it? How do we know if a space is inclusive and accessible for all?
This is the focus of “Beyond Invitation: How Do We Create Inclusive Communities,” a free
conversation with Rachel Bernstein on February 9, 2019 at 2pm at the CCC and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
Rachel Bernstein is the partnership and training manager at Oregon Humanities. For the
past decade, as a political and nonprofit professional, her work has focused on building
the civic capacity and engagement of coalitions, organizations, groups, and individuals.
As a Conversation Project leader, she appreciates discovering what Oregonians are
already doing to create inclusive communities and what questions they are still
