Educational Equity: Investment Not Charity
July 30, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Health Equity: “The Urgency of Now” is a five-part webinar series that builds on the premise that “health equity is the assurance of an opportunity for all people to achieve optimal health.” This listening, learning, and advocacy session is designed to increase participants’ awareness and understanding of the “Vital Conditions” (aka -Social Determinants) that all people and communities need to achieve overall health and well-being. Our speakers will focus on the civil, structural, and racial barriers, as well as potential solutions, to improve educational outcomes – particularly for those communities most affected by inequities. Overall, the webinar series is designed to educate, inform, influence, and galvanize key stakeholders and decision-makers for needed action to advance equity in several key areas – health, education, economics, and civic engagement.
