Both during and following the COVID-19 crisis, governments need to be thinking about how to develop responses and policies that work for everyone. This means listening to all voices, particularly those from underrepresented groups. Listening to and learning with those who are seldom heard is critical if governments are to develop policies and responses that work for all of society; not just the dominant voices. It is also critical to building trust and collaboration in the fight against COVID-19. But what does good listening look like? How does listening lead to action? And how do you make it happen when trust in government is low and lockdown restricts our movement and spaces to meet? This webinar will explore the role and importance of listening to people experiencing complex challenges, and offer some insights around how to do it in a way which builds trust and lasting relationships.
