Diversity, equity and inclusion have been integrated into past NJHI Learning Collaborative sessions as central priorities to sustain thriving and healthy communities. In this session, NJHI grantees and coalition partners explored what it means for organizations to commit to diversity, equity and inclusion in practice. Organizational leaders shared their professional and personal discoveries about:

  • What’s been uncovered about diversity, equity and inclusion in their organizations amid the COVID-19 pandemic and recent social/political divisions, and
  • How they and their organizations are addressing diversity, equity and inclusion to create healthy communities.

Session attendees heard from:

  • Carleton Montgomery, Executive Director, Pinelands Preservation Alliance, a Hammonton Health Coalition partner
  • Steve Jobin, President & CEO, Raritan Bay Area YMCA, a Healthier Perth Amboy partner
  • Leonard Golden, Administrative Supervisor of Social Work, Atlantic County Government, an AC Collaborative partner
  • Diane Hagerman, Deputy Director of Programs, NJHI

There was also an open discussion to hear how other NJHI partners are addressing diversity, equity and inclusion in their organizations.

The Learning Collaborative session highlighted coalitions that have continued important work and achieved accomplishments in environmental, policy, and systems change in their communities. We were inspired to hear from:

  • The Camden Conservation Blueprint Team, about the launch of the New Jersey Conservation Blueprint mapping tool which helps create healthier community environments.
  • The Greater Newark HUD Tenants’ Coalition, about the Compassionate NJ Campaign that is centered on advocacy and policy change for tenant protections in Newark and statewide. Layqa Nuna Yawar is the artist who created the compelling campaign posters.
  • The AC Collaborative, about the interagency collaborative and systems change that enabled Atlantic City to respond to community needs amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lessons from the First Wave” is an All In: Data for Community Health report that highlights success stories from coalitions in Atlantic City, Newark, and Middlesex.
