Our Strategic Framework

By Risa Wilkerson on March 30th, 2020

In 2017, our team began a series of intentional conversations to check our assumptions, refine how we measure our impact, and create structures to hold ourselves accountable to that vision. This included the need for a framework to guide our efforts and goals. In recognition of the nimble nature of this work, we developed a concise, transparent, and flexible framework that focused on equity, described our guiding principles, and refined four initial focus areas for our work.

This framework is both our guide for action and our promise to you. So we spent time in 2019 reflecting on how well we are upholding that promise. We looked at successes, aspirations that still hold promise, and areas that are no longer as relevant. The field evolves quickly.

From that reflection, our newly updated framework describes our current priorities and vision for impact. We look forward to connecting with partners around our common goals. Please ask us questions and challenge our thinking. Together we will advance equity, accelerate lasting action, and enhance collaboration to ensure health and wellbeing for all.
