Chicagoland equity network
Working to advance a common equity agenda across our region
We are a broad collaborative of individuals committed to promoting just and fair inclusion of all residents through education, outreach, and advocacy. The vision of the network is that racial and gender equity will be achieved within Chicago and Cook County.
The network has prioritized the following areas of work: ● Galvanize community groups that are the most impacted by inequities, as well as groups that hold institutional power, to raise the common understanding about equity ● Develop a shared set of definitions and indicators that can be used to monitor equity advancements ● Identify best practices for improving equity, and build resources to enable local strategies and initiatives to have greater equity impacts ● Incorporate an equity lens into policy development and decision making and service provision within all partner organizations
