Equity & Power Sharing

A commitment to equity and sharing power is core to SV2’s new Strategic Plan. We continue to recognize deep inequities and troubling power dynamics, and we implement equity and power sharing practices in our work. We are committed to “getting proximate,” knowing that our understanding of community assets, challenges, and solutions must be guided by community voice and wisdom.

Join us at this in-person interactive workshop to explore these foundational values together. This session is geared for Partners who are newer to SV2, as well as any Partner who wants a refresher on how SV2 strives to live these values.
