Register now for Introduction to the Anchor Mission, a workshop hosted by HASC and the Communities Lifting Communities (CLC) Advancing Health Equity and Economic Opportunity Initiative. The complimentary online workshop is one of four in which participants will collectively address the underlying racial, social, economic, environmental and systemic conditions that fuel health inequities through implementing anchor missions and anchor strategy.

In this hands-on, interactive session, you’ll learn about the anchor mission — defined as a commitment to apply economic power in partnership with the community to mutually benefit the long-term well-being of both. Participants will:

  • Learn how to apply the anchor mission frame to their day-to-day work, within their institutions and as a member of a regional collaborative of hospitals and health systems;
  • Learn to create momentum and build desire among a core group of champions to steward anchor mission in your institutions;
  • Discuss how your organization can engage in anchor mission workstreams in workforce development, local purchasing and place-based investing;
  • Explore other collaborative learning opportunities and engage with HASC and CLC on the Advancing Health Equity and Economic Opportunity Initiative. 

Who Should Attend?

Participating hospital teams should include at least one executive leader and members from human resources, workforce development, purchasing/procurement, community benefit/population health diversity, equity and inclusion and treasury.  All designated team members must attend the Jan. 31 session. For more details, please view the workshop brochure.
