This month #CompactNationPod comes to you live from the Midwest Regional Conference at Loyola University in Chicago! Joining our hosts for our first live episode is Byron White, Vice President and Executive Director of the StrivePartnership. White and our hosts dive into conversation about ways institutions can best work with communities from an asset-based framework and how to find resources where you might not expect them. Hear about equity in community engagement work, best moments from the conference, and more in this month’s episode!
