Equity and Empowerment Lens

What Is The Equity and Empowerment Lens?

The Equity and Empowerment Lens (with a racial justice focus) is a transformative quality improvement tool used to improve planning, decision-making, and resource allocation leading to more racially equitable policies and programs. At its core, it is a set of principles, reflective questions, and processes that focuses at the individual, institutional, and systemic levels by:

  • deconstructing what is not working around racial equity;
  • reconstructing and supporting what is working;
  • shifting the way we make decisions and think about this work; and
  • healing and transforming our structures, our environments, and ourselves.
