Meet the Inaugural 2023-2024 Together Toward Equity Fellows
A strong public health infrastructure that recognizes community organizations as trusted, equal partners is essential to impact the root causes of long-term, systemic inequities.
PHI’s Together Toward Equity Fellowship strengthens community leadership and organizational impact by creating a dynamic Fellowship to invest in an effective, sustainable and equity-focused public health infrastructure for the future.
The Fellowship forges a pathway for Fellows to grow within and with community organizations through coaching, capacity building activities, access to subject matter experts, project-based leadership, and peer networking. To provide additional support and benefits to organizations, the Fellowship includes peer-engagement, skills-building, and organizational support for each organization represented in the Fellowship. This includes, but is not limited to, access to virtual trainings and online self-guided learning. Learn more about the Together Toward Equity Fellowship.
