A learning culture: participation and inclusive governance for quality care
Peter MacLeod, Principal and Founder, MASS LBP
Drawing on more than a decade of pioneering work that has helped to popularize citizen deliberation in Canada, MacLeod argues against popular conceptions of public engagement and instead proposes a culture focused on organization learning, participation and inclusive governance that he believes is integral to high-performing health systems and quality care.
Peter MacLeod is the founder and principal of MASS LBP, and one of Canada’s leading experts in public engagement and deliberative democracy. Since its founding in 2007, MASS has completed more than 200 major policy projects for governments and public agencies across Canada. His firm has earned international recognition for its ground-breaking use of Civic Lotteries and Citizen Reference Panels to inform significant public policy decisions.
Peter frequently writes and speaks about the citizen’s experience of the state, the importance of public imagination, and the future of responsible government.
He is the past chair of Toronto’s Wellesley Institute, for Urban Health, and currently serves on the boards of Tides Canada, an environmental charity, and the Environics Institute. He is also an adjunct lecturer at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto.
