How we measure our impact
Members of Health Equity Initiative join more than an organization. HEI is a social movement that seeks to heighten attention to health equity issues, and promote action to address key root causes of health inequities and improve conditions. HEI is founded on the belief that all of us are part of the solution, and that every community, every sector, every professional, and every citizen is a major stakeholder in achieving equity in health for all.
By breaking down silos that isolate professions, communities, and stakeholders, HEI empowers its members with connections, innovative ideas, resources, and skills to improve their effectiveness in addressing health inequities in their communities, cities, and organizations.
We will apply best quality standards used for the evaluation of membership organizations to assess specific organizational goals, strategies and practices, extending to each category of activity. Whenever possible, we will measure our results: our demonstrable impact on behavior, policy, and social and organizational change within different groups, communities, and professional sectors as reported by our diverse membership.
