Webinar: Living health equity values within public health organizations
Personal and societal values guide organizational work on the social determinants of health and health equity. This webinar will review the organizational values that reflect an equity orientation. It will explore how organizations can successfully shift their values to more closely align with those supportive of health equity action. Shifting organizational culture depends on a close alignment between the personal values of staff members and the desired values of the organization.
Each individual working at an organization arrives with a set of values that has varying degrees of overlap with other staff members and that helps shape the organization's value system. However, not all individuals influence the organization's values to the same extent. The leaders of an organization play a key role in sustaining and reinforcing values within their organization. An organization's values can, in turn, support or detract from health equity action when they influence the goals and priorities of policies and practices.
Participants will learn about
- the values that reflect health equity;
- how to assess the values inherent in existing organizational policies and practices; and
- strategies for shifting organizational values to support health equity action.
