Advancing Health Equity Through Mixed-Income Communities
June 4 from 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Join us June 4th at 1pm Eastern / 10am Pacific for a special Network Commons online discussion exploring the latest research and advances on the connection between mixed-income communities and the social determinants of health.
How can mixed-income community interventions best be used as a lever to create equitable, healthy places to live? How can mixed-income community efforts cultivate an inclusive community where everyone feels they belong and can thrive?
Hear how residents, developers, city agencies, foundations, community-based organizations, and other stakeholders are creating and sustaining inclusive communities through purposeful planning and practices and discuss ways to push toward further inclusion and equity.
With implications for all organizations seeking to promote health and racial equity, our speakers will explore how communities that intentionally steward diversity across income, race, and ethnicity can create stronger and more resilient neighborhoods.
