You are invited to a webinar hosted by the Federal Interagency Health Equity Team
This webinar will introduce practitioners interested in the lens to discuss the application and outcomes of this analysis in their work. The Lens is a quality improvement tool used to improve planning, decision-making and resource allocation leading to more racially equitable policies and programs. Application of the equity lens ensures that policies impact community outcomes, and it creates the environment for candid dialogue about the root causes of inequities.
The presenter will discuss:
1. The role and obligation of government to address not just social environments but also one’s own practices and approaches;
2. Scenarios/circumstances that initiate conversation about implementing the Equity and Empowerment Lens;
3. Ways in which the tool has been adapted in various settings to enhance organizational capacity and build accountability.
