Inclusive Coasts Initiative Community of Practice
Welcome to the Inclusive Coasts Initiative Community of Practice Groups. The intent of these groups is to form a community to rely on and share ideas with when implementing DEIJ initiatives in your workplace.
The groups are split into job related sections: 1) community engagement and environmental education professionals, 2) program managers, and 3) restoration professionals. Anyone is welcome to join this group at any time, so please share with anyone in your network who might enjoy this space as well.
The communities of practice were formed from feedback from the Inclusive Coasts Initiative Workshop Series in which we found many people were interested in continuing the conversation portion of the workshops and fewer were interested in the learning aspect of the workshops. The communities of practice groups were born from the desire for conversations around these topics and a need for a space to share struggles, successes, and advice from peers.
The first communities of practice were held on March 30th, 2023 and each community of practice selected broad topics of interest for the next sessions. Check back to this page for a list of dates and topics!
