Justice40/Environmental Justice Stakeholder Engagement Meeting

At the conclusion of the WTP Awardee Meeting on Tuesday, October 19, we will convene a public Justice40/Environmental Justice Stakeholder Engagement Meeting from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. EDT.

The purpose of the meeting is two-fold:

  1. To share information about the Justice40 Initiative and also one of the pilot programs covered under the initiative – the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Environmental Career Worker Training Program (ECWTP).
  2. To solicit your feedback and suggestions on how to enhance the program's effectiveness.

Please consider attending this event so that we can develop a more robust workforce development model to conduct environmental and construction-related training for disadvantaged and underserved populations throughout the United States.

WTP Workshop Details

The Fall WTP Technical Workshop will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, October 20-21, 2021. The workshop is tentatively scheduled from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. EDT both days.

Purpose and Scope of the Workshop
Partnerships ensure the longevity and success of WTP efforts at a local and national scale. The fall workshop will consider elements that are integral to forming successful partnerships among WTP stakeholders, including grantee organizations, community-based organizations, and state and federal agencies. While partnerships may take various forms, they require an understanding of expectations and formulating negotiations that will result in mutual benefits. The workshop will address these topics, along with other issues related to building and sustaining partnerships. Workshop participants will have an opportunity to learn about the strengths and needs of others within the WTP network. Participants will leave with a better understanding of communication, evaluation, and other strategies needed to enhance their partnerships.
