Charting impact

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

1. Prevent domestic violence and abuse
2. Reduce the incidence and prevalence of domestic abuse in our community
3. Increase awareness of domestic abuse in our community

1. Increased outreach and education
2. Adding prevention components to all programs
3. Being mindful about systems that promote healthy relationships

1. Qualified workforce
2. Strategic work that aligns with mission and vision

The community is more willing to engage in chats about domestic abuse.
Schools invite us for presentations.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • 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 community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • 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.
