Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to respectfully provide compassionate evidence-based sexual health services and education necessary to make informed healthcare decisions

Beliefs:
Women are strong and capable of making their own decisions.
Every woman should be equipped to make informed decisions about her own health.
No woman should be pressured into anything with which she feels uncomfortable.
Women, regardless of their socioeconomic status, deserve healthcare that does not profit from their medical decisions.
Every woman deserves to live in a safe and healthy environment.

We believe in providing compassionate care for each and every patient. Our exams are and will remain free as we do not believe in creating barriers for women in our community to have access to healthcare. We believe that by providing evidence based education about anyone's healthcare, they are able to fully understand and make the best decisions for themselves and their bodies.

3W Medical for Women patient care is exclusively provided by licensed medical professionals. Our services range from well women exams to STI/STD testing and treatment. Please visit our website for a list of our services: 3wmedical.org

We successfully open our doors in April 2017 and have been able to see up to 600 patients thus far. We are preparing to see more and more patients each week. Our next steps are to hire on more medical professionals as well as administrative support as our budget and patient volume continues to grow.

Data
  • 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 use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • 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.
