Healthy Active & Vibrant Communities

Trailnet is working with organizations and institutions throughout the St. Louis region to develop and implement policies promoting active living and healthy nutrition in four low-income communities most vulnerable to developing obesity

Population(s) Served
Adults

Trailnet is now working with the Central West End community to promote biking to work and for short trips. Goals of this program are to increase awareness of cycling safety and to increase physical activity levels.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Trailnet has been helping community planning throughout the St. Louis metropolitan region create the framework for developing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure through bicycle and pedestrian master plans. These multi-faceted plans provide the blueprint for municipalities to design healthy and active communities

Population(s) Served
Adults

Safe Routes to School is a national and international movement to create safe, convenient and fun opportunities for children to bicycle and walk to and from schools. The program has been designed to reverse the decline in children walking and bicycling.

Population(s) Served
Families

When choosing bicycling or walking as an alternative mode of transportation, safety is an important consideration. Trailnet’s rodeos include bike safety checks, local hospitals’ bike helmet programs (nominal charge helmets and helmet fittings), bike safety presentation, practice courses and safety quiz.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Trailnet is moving St. Louis forward as a place where everyone can travel easily by foot or by bicycle. We are thrilled to take our work to the next level with our bold vision: connecting St. Louis with a network of on-street protected bikeways and sidewalks. This project will transform our wonderful city by connecting neighborhoods, cultural districts, and business centers.

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 disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • 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 have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • 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 measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • 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.
