2019-2020 Equity and Inclusion Competency Series

October Offering: Equity Lens to Policy Review

Our competency series has returned! The second webinar will take place on Tuesday, October 8 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. The topic is Equity Lens to Policy Review. Please click here to join the session.

An equity lens is a process for analyzing or diagnosing the impact of the design and implementation of policies on under-served and marginalized individuals and groups, and to identify and potentially eliminate barriers. Such groups may include: race/ethnicity, religious expression, veteran status, nationality, including underrepresented groups and new immigrant populations, people who identify as women, age, socio-economic, people with both apparent and non-apparent disabilities, people of various gender and sexual identities and expressions, American Indians and other indigenous populations.

During this webinar, we will share a proposed protocol and tool to implement during the policymaking, review, and implementation phases. A protocol for policy review provides a structure for institutionalizing the considering of equity in the process of making, implementing, and reviewing policy.
