Webinar Description

What does health equity look like in your community?  Over 75 people from across MA participated in our March Health Equity Trainings Series. In order to share the work more broadly and go deeper, we invite you to bring members of your teams, coalitions, networks, communities, and others to this 90-minute interactive webinar. Participation in the prior trainings is not expected - the webinar will be accessible for all levels. During the webinar, participants will be invited to review four questions explored during the prior trainings. These are key questions to ask to affect change to conditions that contribute to inequities. The webinar will include practical steps and examples for applying key concepts. The trainer will go deeper into different types of targets for change and examples of tactics. At least three different examples will be explored:

  • Policy Change
  • Institutional Change
  • Building Up Leaders


Learning Objectives

By the end of the webinar, participants in the training will be able to

  1. Define Health Equity
  2. Name and discuss the four key equity questions to ask to affect systems change
  3. Discuss practical steps and tactics to improve equity in the realms of policy change, systems change, and leadership development.
