Building Capacity to Operationalize Equity


The SMC Planning Equity Cohort, which includes County staff from the Health Policy and Planning team, Office of Sustainability, City/County Association of Governments, and the Planning and Building Department concluded a nine-month training to operationalize equity in climate resilience efforts and foster cross-departmental equity efforts. The training was in partnership with the North Fair Oaks Community Alliance, which is working on organizing and training residents to be better prepared for climate hazards. The training and partnership focused on achieving relational goals and rebuilding trust with a community that has been underserved while working in a culturally competent community preparedness curriculum that will serve as a training tool for North Fair Oaks residents.
