Our model

We offer a unique training and Technical Assistance (TA) series, Building a Container & Foundation for Health Equity, as well as customized trainings, and tailored, hands-on consulting support.

We work with your team to create the conditions for change in a way that is appropriate and specific to your context, while encouraging experimentation and boldness to deepen and strengthen your health equity practice. We also offer partners connections to our national network of health department leaders and public health organizations, to share support and strategies from across the field.

Our training and technical assistance help public health organizations:
  • Deepen relationships and integrate the head and the heart
  • Advance equity and racial justice through structural solutions
  • Transform dominant narratives that impede true health equity
  • Build, shift, and share power with communities
  • Align with social movements
  • Cultivate visionary and strategic leadership to guide liberation culture
  • Connect to our nationwide health equity network

Customized Consulting and Training

Whether your organization is in the beginning stages of discussing health equity strategies or deep into a comprehensive organization-wide journey, we offer customized consulting to help you design and implement meaningful strategies and projects that accelerate organizational growth. In addition to consulting support, we facilitate customized trainings on a variety of health equity topics, including narrative strategy, power mapping, and other areas that may fit your organization’s needs. Trainings can be virtual (minimum 3 hours; up to 50 participants) or in-person (minimum half day and up to 3 consecutive days; participant size varies).

Community of Practice 

HIP’s Community of Practice (CoP) is a space where public health practitioners come together to explore, discuss, and develop capacity and strategies to advance health equity across multiple stakeholders. The CoP model helps participants build authentic partnerships, work intentionally with the communities they serve, and act as meaningful partners to advance health and racial equity. We pair our CoP sessions with foundational workshops, technical assistance, and coaching on various topics to help public health practitioners learn new ways of being together and advance health equity more effectively.
