Community engagement learning collaborative


As we begin to chart our course as a foundation centered on health equity, we are exploring the many ways to engage communities in a way that is authentic, respectful, effective, and focused on community strengths. To inform this effort, we convened a Learning Collaborative comprised of leaders from across Washington state with deep experience advocating and organizing with communities. This report, titled “Shifting Power,” highlights perspectives from the Collaborative on how the Foundation (and philanthropy in general) can support, learn from, and partner with communities in the journey towards health equity.

We invite your reactions and feedback on these perspectives.
