Changing organizational practices to advance health equity is a difficult task. But through using the Human Impact Partners' definition of health equity and theory of change, we can begin to minimize the barriers of change management. This webinar will feature Megan Gaydos, Project Director at Human Impact Partners, and will focus on methods that health departments can use to address power imbalances and other factors in order to advance health equity.

Audience
Local health department staff, community organization leaders, and other public health professionals

Learning Objectives
  • Describe the role of health departments in addressing power imbalances, racism and other forms of oppression at the root of health inequities.
