Advancing Health Equity to Achieve Diversity and Inclusion (AHEAD) in WIC: Results from the National Landscape Scan
By National WIC Association
In 2019, 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 within
the larger WIC community 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 to identify emerging and promising practices at the WIC state and local level related to EDI practices being implemented across the country. This document highlights key findings from the landscape scan.
