Together Toward Equity Fellowship Blog: Reflections on Leadership Development, Community, Health & Equity
PHI’s Together Toward Equity Fellowship strengthens community leadership and organizational impact by investing in an effective, sustainable and equity-focused public health infrastructure for the future. The program provides a dynamic, year-long learning experience, with an inaugural 2023-2024 cohort of fifteen individuals working in nine California counties, selected from community-based organizations across the state.
In this blog series, Together Toward Equity Fellows share experiences related to their leadership development and other lessons-learned throughout the program, and provide insights into their unique perspectives on advancing health equity in their local communities.
