Governing for equity: Best practices for local government leaders

When it comes to governing for equity, state and local government leaders have two important questions to answer:

  1. Are our services and operations fair?
  2. Are they inclusive?

If you're not already asking these questions, it's time to start. Governing for equity is not just a buzzword — it's a fundamental principle that drives positive change in our communities. It's about ensuring that all residents are considered, that decisions address historical and systemic inequities, and that everyone has equal access to opportunities, services and resources.

But governing for equity is not without its challenges. Public meetings, for example, can be a powerful venue for engagement, but access can be a common challenge. Transparency in between meetings is also crucial, as community members increasingly demand to know what their local government is doing and how they can provide feedback. That's where this guide comes in.
