Build Power for Health Equity Training: Using an Inside-Outside Strategy

Who is it for

Public health agency staff and their allies who want to build their understanding, leadership, and skills to advance health equity.

Training objectives

Introduce a set of strategic practices that health departments can implement to meaningfully and comprehensively advance health equity. After building a shared understanding of the underpinnings of health inequities, this training focuses on how to champion transformative change by confronting the power imbalances and forms of oppression at the root of health inequities, changing the conversation about what creates health equity, developing leadership and supporting innovation, and building a movement for health equity.

Depending on the needs of partners, training and technical assistance can dive deeper into practices health departments can take to:

  • Build internal capacity and infrastructure and take strategic risks to advance equity
  • Foster strategic community partnerships to build power and engage in social justice movements
  • Work across government agencies to develop shared ownership for health equity
Cost and group size
  • One-day training: $9,000-$11,000
  • Two-day training: $15,000-$17,500
  • Maximum number of participants: 35.

Health Impact Assessment (HIA) Training: Two days

Who is it for

This training is ideal for groups actively considering conducting an HIA, or who want to build capacity for a specific HIA project. A significant amount of advance work is done with training sponsors to identify participants, prepare a case study for use at the training, and to train small group facilitators. We encourage hosts to engage a diverse group of stakeholders to participate, as the training itself provides an opportunity to build relationships for future work to increase the consideration of health and equity in decision-making.

Training objectives
  • Familiarize participants with the goals of HIA
  • Describe the steps in the HIA process, with an explicit focus on equity at each stage
  • Offer participants the opportunity to practice working through each step in the context of a local case study example
  • Facilitate discussion about stakeholder and community engagement in HIA and the variety of roles for stakeholders in the HIA process
  • Bring together diverse stakeholders to work on an HIA, build relationships, and develop a shared understanding of how to use HIA
  • Highlight intervention points in decision-making processes where HIA can be applied
  • Help participants develop a workplan to conduct an HIA project
Cost and group size
  • Two-day training: $15,000-$17,500
  • Maximum number of participants: 35
  • The first part of the training could be opened up to a larger group.

Health Impact Assessment (HIA) Training: One day

Training objectives
  • Cover the essential steps in the HIA process, with an explicit focus on equity at each stage
  • Practice moving through the Screening and Scoping steps of an HIA
  • Provide examples of HIA case studies and their impacts
  • Include an additional module focusing on the interests/needs of the audienceIn contrast to our two-day training, this one-day training places a greater emphasis on group work to identify topics that could be the subject of an HIA and informal scoping of those ideas

  • One-day training: $10,000
  • Maximum number of participants: 35
  • The first part of the training could be opened up to a larger group.

Health Impact Assessment (HIA) Training: Half-day

Training objectives
  • Familiarize a wide audience with the goals and process of HIA
  • Provide examples of HIA case studies
  • Identify topics that could be the subject of an HIA (i.e., Screening)

Half-day Health in All Policies (HiAP) Training

Who is it for

This training is ideal for those interested in implementing a HiAP approach in their institution/organization, and who want to understand examples of how to do this. Given that the field (and its examples/approaches) is so varied, training content is tailored to meet the needs of local hosts, and some advance work is needed to accomplish this. We can combine this half-day training with the half-day HIA workshop for a full-day workshop experience.

Training objectives
  • Familiarize participants with the field of HiAP and describe examples in practice
  • Consider how to institutionalize HiAP
  • Discuss how equity and engagement can be incorporated into HiAP

This training includes a module on HIA/health lens analysis as a core HiAP strategy and includes examples of how HIAs have been used.

Cost and group size
  • Half-day training: $4,500
  • Maximum number of participants: 35
  • Can be combined with the half-day HIA workshop for a full-day workshop experience.
