Privilege

Workplace power, privilege, and equity: What's the connection?

Public health leadership is the practice of mobilizing people, organizations, and communities to effectively tackle tough public health challenges.1 Our population health goals include protecting and promoting equity and health, transforming people and place, ensuring a healthy planet, and achieving health equity. We are all public health leaders, and embodying and promoting equity is our core value. Unless we meaningfully pursue eliminating workplace inequities in all its forms we will be hampered in addressing other inequities, including racial and health.
