Engage with Health Equity Initiative's Community and Increase Your Organization's Visibility!
We are not your typical membership organization.
Health Equity Initiative operates a little differently than most membership organizations. We know it's important to break new grounds.
We always keep in mind that our community is made of very different groups, and that we all come from different professions and disciplines. We believe that working together across sectors for the common good is the surest path to health equity.
You probably already know that we are committed to multisectoral solutions and participatory approaches, but if you don't please look at our history and highlights of accomplishments. We also want you to know that you're part of our community. We hope you will become a partner on specific projects or donate in support of our overall mission.
We customize sponsorship opportunities to meet the needs of our partners and/or for particular events and activities. Our basic sponsorship opportunity ($5,000) include the benefits listed in the sidebar.

Who is in our community?
Community is at the core of our organization. We are professionals from multiple sectors, community leaders, students, and concerned citizens, all working together in support of health equity. We reach 14,000+ people via our mailing list and social media outreach. Here is a snapshot of the many different professions and disciplines represented in our community. As our community is diverse and committed to work across sectors, the following data are percentages of responses (in other words, some of the same respondents identified themselves with more than one area of work) because many of us are engaged in more than one professional sector. (Data below are from Health Equity Initiative's online survey). For additional information on our membership base please click here
