Our Equity Work

Inclusivity Practice

This framework is intended to help us be more inclusive in our work, so that we can serve more people across our region better.

Inclusivity Practice

Consider these questions about one piece of your work. It could be any new or existing project, program, policy or procedure.

  • What are you trying to do or accomplish? (What’s your intended impact?)
  • Why are you trying to do it? (What problem are you solving, or need are you addressing?)
  • Who is most affected by the work? (Who are you trying to impact?)
    • Are there people not being served well by the work (intentionally or unintentionally) who could be?
      • If yes, who are they and would designing it differently strengthen and advance our purpose and strategy?
        • If yes, how will you change the design?
    • Are there people not being included in shaping the work (intentionally or unintentionally) who could be?
      • If yes, who are they and would including them strengthen and advance our purpose and strategy?
        • If yes, how will you include them?
