Equity in Prevention: A Live Webinar Series from NC 4-H and RIZE Consultants

Equity in Prevention, registration open now!

Join us for our upcoming Equity in Prevention Lunch and Learn series, hosted by NC 4-H Empowering Youth and Families Program (EYFP) and RIZE Consultants. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light the issues of social and structural inequity that create differences in outcomes based on a myriad of characteristics, such as race/ethnicity, gender, income level, and geography. Although the history of inequity is centuries in the making, the recent experience of the pandemic has created a shift in consciousness, thus allowing us an opportunity to discuss how far we still need to go to achieve true equity and inclusion within our communities. 

In this series, we will look at each step of the prevention planning process and discuss what the issues are, why they matter so much in the field of prevention (and beyond), and how we can move towards solutions right now. This event is free and space is limited to the first 300 registrants.

Sessions will run September 13–17, 2021, daily from noon–1 p.m. (EDT) via Zoom.

Topics include:

Monday, September 13: Foundational Concepts–Why Equity Matters in Our Work

Tuesday, September 14: Equity in Research Practices

Wednesday, September 15: Equity in Access

Thursday, September 16: Equity in Planning Effective Prevention Programs

Friday, September 17: Equity in Action
