Issues of inequity are often at the core of the complex problems that collective impact initiatives are working to change. Initiatives should center equity in their work to ensure that they are not reinforcing inequitable systems and outcomes in their solutions. But how can initiatives strive to better keep equity at the center of their work, and how does infusing equity practices within one’s work change processes, and ultimately, outcomes?
Join us for this Collective Impact Forum Virtual Coffee, Advancing Equity in Collective Impact. We’re talking with Deycy Hernandez, Director for Promesa Boyle Heights about their experience centering equity and community within their work.
This virtual coffee conversation was held on July 31, 2018 from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm ET
