Learning-Circle Partnerships and the Evaluation of a Boundary-Crossing Leadership Initiative in Health PDF file [download] [more info]

This article describes an initiative developed by The California Endowment (TCE) to explore how best to support leadership capacity development in low-income communities and communities of color to create health. TCE’s investment strategies were developed in response to growing disparities in health outcomes and a recognition that there would be little improvement in those disparities without effective, engaged, and connected leadership among underrepresented populations. With the changing demographics in California, TCE is committed to amplifying and aligning the voices of immigrant, youth, and ethnic communities so that they can more effectively influence the systems that affect the health quality of low-income communities and communities of color.
