Lunch and Learn Series – Equity as the Foundation for Behavioral Health Leadership
November 17 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am MST
We are at a long overdue point in time where the recognition of decades of systemic health inequities have yielded significantly worse outcomes for indigenous, racial and ethnic minoritized, marginalized, and under-resourced populations, which has led to years of poor outcomes and reduced quality of life. Since the start of the pandemic, there is an alarming decline in behavioral health outcomes particularly for the most marginalized populations. We are also on the precipice of significant and complex behavioral health systems changes – such as the implementation of 988 – giving us the opportunity to identify inequities and eradicate them through equity-grounded leadership.
Equity-Grounded Leadership stems from the understanding that the current systems are unjust. It empowers leaders to mobilize themselves and others to create positive change. Equity-grounded leadership is anti-racist, person-centered, recovery-oriented, trauma-informed, and acknowledges that individuals have different experiences, abilities, needs, and strengths. It allows leaders to account for those and develop strategies for decision making to include all voices.
Please join Peg’s Foundation to learn about Equity-Grounded Leadership and how this foundational principle of leadership can be applied in your organization, community or region.
- Explore what behavioral health equity means and what this means for leaders
- Learn how one organization is working to support the development of equity-grounded leadership
- Discuss the principles of equity-grounded leadership and how you can apply them in your community
