In recent years, there has been an intense focus on Equity in policies, programs, and strategies across the nation. States have introduced mandates to ensure Equity and various definitions (frontline, disadvantaged, environmental justice, hard-to-reach, income-qualified) have emerged to better identify and serve key communities often left behind. CBOs, Programs, Utilities, and States have developed strategies for equitable policies and programs, as well as metrics to measure progress. Learn from the experiences of experts Brian Tyson, Claudia Caballero, Maggie McCarey, and Maggie Kelly Riggins in their journey to lead with equity.

Compare the progress and the impact of Equity in program design and delivery in several states
