  • Educational materials: Developed educational materials about Regional Equity Atlas 2.0, including a brochure (PDF) and introductory workshop (PDF), as well as technical training materials such as a user guide (PDF) and training curriculum.

  • Workshops and trainings: Shared the mapping tool and findings with stakeholders across the region through workshops and trainings that involved more than 3,000 participants from government agencies, advocacy groups, nonprofits, health systems, and community-based organizations. 

  • Equity Stories Project: Engaged community members from organizations across the region in an Equity Stories Project to highlight the everyday experiences behind the patterns shown in the maps and connect people who are affected by regional inequities to the project in a deeper way.

  • White papers: Launched an ongoing white paper series that engages partner organizations in analyzing key Regional Equity Atlas 2.0 topics in greater depth to place the equity atlas within a broader policy context.
