Equity Framework – Principles
Systemic Focus: We are focused on removing systemic barriers within the child and family service system.
Collective Impact Approach: Working with organizations across the Network – not in silos – is required to address systemic inequities.
Targeted Universalism: Everyone benefits from targeted removal of systemic barriers. Reducing barriers and disparities will lead to a better Toronto for everyone.
Distinct and Intersectional: inequities are experienced differently across populations, and within them along intersectional lines.
Inclusive Process: people experiencing inequities must be meaningfully engaged and their perspectives inform decision-making
Transparent, evidence-based: Our approach is evidence-based and driven by measurable goals and outcomes that are tracked and publicly reported.
Sustainability: We are setting the foundation for long-term equity efforts.
