Good to Great: A Strategic Plan for High Performing Organizations 

November 7 , 10:00 am EST November 9 , 2:30 pm EST

Determining the strategic direction of an organization is crucial when creating the strategic  roadmap that leads to fulfilling the overall vision and mission of the organization. Conducting  both an internal and external needs assessment to develop results-based logic models will help  to “tell the story behind the data,” which is critical to the strategic planning process. This  information will be imperative to help frame a strategic plan to ensure that activities and  efforts remain laser focused on influencing racial wealth disparities and advance racial equity in  BIPOC communities that we serve.  

This course will discuss a framework for developing this strategic road map for each phase of  the organizational life cycle and how to strategically execute the plan to produce a high level  impact in communities. No matter the phase of growth of an organization, a strategic plan is  important to put in writing your organizational and programmatic plans and how you plan to  accomplish them. Not only is intentional strategic planning critical to the success and performance of an  organization, strategic management is equally as important to assure that the developed plan is  fully and methodically implemented. Strategic Management is knowing how to properly  evaluate and measure impact, which is critical in sustaining the activities of a high performing  organization.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
