The desire to achieve equity drives the reason why many of us work in the field of maternal and child health. Racial inequities are evident in health outcomes across the board. In addressing these disparities, organizations often neglect to assess how they may be contributing to the racial inequities we work so hard to eliminate. We are working within a system founded on principles to advance specific groups of people, while leaving others behind. This foundation has led to biases being present in our policies, procedures, and day-to-day interactions. The webinar features CityMatCH members Janet Jones of the Waco-McLennan County Public Health District, Ana Novais of the Rhode Island Department of Health, and Jessica Ehule, CityMatCH staff member. Join CityMatCH’s Equity Action group and CityLeaders Cohort 12 as we discuss the strategies used by these agencies to actualize racial equity with discussion about how leaders can be impactful in this work.
