Racial Justice and Power-Sharing: The Heart of Leading Systems Change


Chapter 2 of "Leading Systems Change in Public Health: A Field Guide for Practitioners" discusses:

  • How to develop a shared analysis and expand our mental models regarding the manner in which power imbalances, racism, and other forms of oppression define and structure the systems that drive health.
  • Attending to the work of “being” together, and not just “doing” together, as a way of deepening the relationships necessary to disrupt these patterns at the interpersonal, team, organizational, and community levels.
  • Establishing change processes that embody a model of sharing power and shifting who represents and is leading transformation.
