2021-22 Public Policy Roadmap

Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children (PPC) is pleased to present our biennial policy roadmap that aligns with our organization’s mission to improve the health, education and well-being of children and youth in the Commonwealth. The COVID-19 pandemic has put tremendous hardships on Pennsylvania families’ well-being and economic security, and has exacerbated existing health, social, educational, financial and other systemic inequities and barriers. Ensuring each child living in Pennsylvania has the opportunity to reach their full potential means that PPC is committed to considering policy choices that not only improve maternal and child well-being, but also advance racial equity and consider the impacts of those hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic downturn. Our work to advance equitable policy solutions plays a critical role both in the short-term during the pandemic as well as our longer-term vision, because we can’t achieve our goals if any child is left behind.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
