Advancing Health Equity to Achieve Diversity and Inclusion: AHEAD in WIC Results from the National Landscape Scan – Outreach and Partnerships
By National WIC Association
In 2019, the National WIC Association (NWA) received a grant from the Walmart Foundation to support a two-year project aimed at Advancing Health Equity to Achieve Diversity & Inclusion (AHEAD) in WIC. One of the key goals of AHEAD in WIC was to systematically build capacity among WIC agencies and staff to incorporate a health equity framework into WIC research, policy, and practice. As part of the AHEAD project, NWA worked with Nutrition Equity and Justice Partners, a nutrition and health equity consulting company, to conduct a national landscape scan targeting WIC stakeholders to identify emerging and promising practices being implemented at the state and local level to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). This one-pager presents results from the landscape scan related to barriers and facilitators to support equity, diversity, and inclusion in outreach and partnerships.
