HEI Member Committees are a great place to start networking, and sharpen or acquire relevant skills. As we continue to build the multisectoral organization you have asked for, Health Equity Initiative needs your help to make sure this continues to be YOUR organization. As a member-driven volunteer organization, you take ownership of activities and focus through the member committees! Your passion, commitment, and experience is what makes HEI different.
All committees are composed of volunteer members who agree to nurture and ignite conversation and engagement on health equity and work to develop activities and resources for all members and our broader community on specific areas/topics. Member committees are renewed every year or every two years. Committees often meet monthly via conference call or Zoom as decided by their members and chairs. Different committees work together and participate in inter-committees calls as needed. HEI's board of directors oversees the work of the committees to ensure it aligns with the organization's mission and strategic priorities.
