Description: Effective community health work applies an equity lens with an emphasis on building individual and coalition capacity to engage diverse communities through empowering and competent approaches. There are numerous barriers to such engagement, some conscious, and some unconscious. Race, class, and cultural communication styles all influence the ways in which diverse communities relate to the work. This webinar will introduce participants to health equity, culturally competent approaches, and how to think collaboratively about ways to effectively engage diverse populations/communities in their efforts.

Audience: Individuals or teams working towards community health who may be new to health equity work or seeking a refresher.

Learning Objectives: Participants completing this webinar will be able to

  1. Describe health equity and diversity in a community context.
  2. Describe aspects of a culturally competent approach to community work.
  3. Identify strategies for collaborative work when working across differences.
