Meet the 2020 Equity Ambassadors Cohort

Posted on May 4, 2020

ELGL and Apolitical are thrilled to announce the members of the 2020 Equity Ambassadors Cohort

This cohort is the first of ELGL’s newly formed Cohort Sprints – short, boot-camp style online programs to help local government practitioners access resources, build peer to peer networks, and learn rapidly to address the pressing issues facing today’s governing structures.

The Equity Ambassadors program is focused on the COVID-19 outbreak and how it is forcing public servants to make decisions at an unprecedented pace. With a disease that disproportionately impacts our most vulnerable — from the elderly to low-income — decisions made without underserved communities in mind risk exacerbating current inequities. In times of crisis, it is more important than ever to put equity at the center of decision-making.

During the five-week program, participants will learn from colleagues across the U.S. and around the world, participate in discussions and virtual connection opportunities, and author an article about equity, their own learning, and important issues in their communities for publication with both ELGL and Apolitical.

Want to follow along with the cohort’s progress? Follow ELGL & Apolitical on social. Interested in future cohort opportunities like this? Keep up to date with new opportunities here.
