Webinar: Intersectionality and health equity: Exploring opportunities for public health practice and policy

December 12th, 2016 1-2:30p.m. EST [Note: This webinar will also be delivered in French on December 13, 2016 at 1-2:00 p.m. EST] 


Presented by the National Collaborating Centres for Determinants of Health and Healthy Public Policy.


This webinar will introduce participants to the concept of intersectionality and discuss opportunities to incorporate intersectionality into the theory, design, analysis, and interpretation of public health actions to improve health equity. This will be of particular interest for those seeking to influence the structural determinants of health/causes-of-the-causes. The presenters will discuss their understanding of intersectionality and how it can be applied in public health practice, policy and research focused on the social determinants of health and health equity. They will identify opportunities to better integrate an intersectional lens into various aspects of equity-oriented public health activity.

Toward health equity: Practical actions for Public Health Inspectors

The NCCs for Environmental Health and Determinants of Health (NCCEH and NCCDH) have collaborated to produce two new resources to help environmental public health practitioners address the social determinants of health. 

Practitioners can use these two tools to reflect on their current practice and identify practical actions for use in their day-to-day work or for broader program planning.

  • The Framework outlines 10 considerations to help practitioners identify how equity work relates to their role and how they can begin to take action. It can be used by staff with any degree of knowledge or experience related to health equity.
  • The User Guide highlights potential points of influence for frontline staff, managers, and educators. Together, these tools support reflective practice, collaboration, and action toward equity-integrated environmental public health.

Download these new resources from the NCCEH website or from the NCCDH Resource Library.
