Designing for Equity

The Designing for Equity sessions lift up improvement efforts that reexamine systems through an equity lens with the goal of making impactful changes. These presentations provide case study examples, practical tools, and lessons learned for promoting equitable change in the design and initiation of continuous improvement projects. Also included on this page are reflection questions originally posed by the session presenters, resources for further learning, and a feedback form.
