Public policy discussions should involve the individuals who are being or have been impacted by that policy or subject matter. By embracing co-creation, we advance a reality that people are the experts of their own lives and are partners in the government decisions that impact them.

The intent of these guidelines is to remove barriers to participation in government actions, discussions, and decision-making and to recognize the value and expertise community members contribute to state government workgroups. For the sustained success of promoting equitable policy development, state agencies must establish, sustain, and grow relational partnerships. Moving from a transactional culture to a relational one is critical to developing the trust needed to meet the unique challenges of the 21st century.
