About

In this course, the participant will discover how to address social equity within the community as it applies to the LEED Social Equity Pilot Credits. We will cover ways to think about social equity, the goals and focuses of the pilot credit, and the specific criteria and documentation required for the credit.

The goal of the Social Equity in the Community Credit is to help projects address disparities in access and social inequities within a project’s own community. In order to go beyond charity to support meaningful transformation, building teams must begin to understand the various parts of their communities and understand how they are connected, and community members (particularly those who are vulnerable, disadvantaged and under-represented) must have a greater voice in decisions that impact them.

The intended audience for this course includes architects, engineers, contractors, owners, and other design professionals who want to to promote and further social equity by integrating strategies that address identified social and community needs. Course participants will learn how to achieve the Social Equity within the Community Pilot Credit for the LEED v4 BD+C rating systems. In addition, participants will learn how to utilize the SEED Evaluator tool.
