Mother & Daughter

Our Equity Journey

We believe health equity is vital and achievable.

In the past, health equity was a desired outcome of our work – today, equity is at the center of our strategy, influencing both our investments and how we do our work. We are focused on the areas of greatest need in our communities.  

Over the last five years, the Cambia Health Foundation has philanthropically invested more than $15M to work towards an equitable society and to eliminate health disparities. We have made progress, but there is so much more to do. We are committed to listening, learning and acting to address discrimination and prejudice and transform health care through our philanthropy. We will challenge ourselves and not shy away from being uncomfortable as we commit to our own role and responsibility to create lasting change.  

We are committed to Foundation staff growth and skill development in diversity, equity and inclusion. In 2021 our team participated in a six-month virtual training called Reframing Racism: Language and Tools for Advancing Equity. Facilitated by the Center for Equity and Inclusion (CEI). Additionally, the Foundation currently has representation in The Race Equity Culture™ Fellowship program, a new 10-month peer cohort program for racial equity and DEI leaders in grantmaking organizations. The fellowship is designed and led by a partnership between Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (GEO) and Equity In The Center®.
