current trainings

We highly encourage CHNA 20 community partners to attend the upcoming Community Health Training Institute's Health Equity Series:

Power and Privilege in Health Equity
Saturday, April 28, 2018, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm (Boston, MA)

This training will provide participants with an opportunity to examine critical questions about their personal relationship with power and privilege. What is privilege? How does it manifest in relational and professional dynamics? How do we leverage power, knowingly or unknowingly, to influence conflict or negotiate situations? This training will help facilitate an exploration of self-identity and how to build on that self-awareness to help set the tone for positive professional relationships and work in the broader community. This training will also discuss how to recognize the privilege that some of us hold and use that understanding to empower others and make connections across difference.

Racial Equity
Saturday, April 28, 2018, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm (Boston, MA)

Achieving racial equity requires society’s systems and markets to perform equally well for different racial and ethnic groups. Unfortunately, the data for most of our systems and markets do not currently show equity or parity for our most disenfranchised racial and ethnic groups. This training will explore how institutional or customary practices, whether intentional or unintentional, are set up to further perpetuate racial health inequities. Participants will get a chance to explore how this manifests in the community context and ways in which they can work actively against perpetuating these inequitable systems.
