This webinar describes a set of “inside” and “outside” strategic practices that public local health departments can use to advance equity. The panelists provide concrete examples of how they have implemented these practices, their lessons learned, and their practical guidance to local health department staff interested in tackling similar efforts. Specific practices such as hiring and contracting, staff training, partnering with community organizing groups, and using Health in All Policies are covered during this training. Broader themes to be discussed include confronting the root causes of inequity and supporting leadership and innovation to advance equity.
