We work toward all people being compensated fairly and treated with dignity, and everyone having access to the food, shelter, and physical and mental health supports that allow families and communities to thrive. We work toward a future where people of all genders, races and ethnicities, abilities, income levels, and occupations have a voice in the decisions that affect their lives. And we work towards solutions in a way that is connected and compassionate.
The mission of Equity Solutions is to provide engaging and innovative education for state agencies, social service organizations, schools, and businesses so participants gain tools for strong client, staff, and leadership/management relationships, for creating a work environment where all are valued and thriving, and for actively contributing to a collective response to root causes of poverty. By using an equity lens we move beyond “helping” to transform relationships among people living in poverty and the organizations meant to serve them. This model empowers all stakeholders to co-create short and long-term solutions that work.
