CI for Equity — Creating a Collaborative and Diverse Team (CI4E Design Team)

The Design Team’s process resulted in two key products: critical inquiry questions and a curated set of tools that users can access to support an equity-driven continuous improvement process.



Description: The critical inquiry questions, also known as equity considerations, aim to provide an entry point for improvement teams to examine their processes with an equity lens with a list of equity-centered prompts for teams to consider.



When using this resource, keep in mind: Intentionally infusing, prioritizing, and sustaining an equity lens to an improvement project often requires a mindset change for those engaged in this work. This list reflects important considerations that teams must keep in mind during both planning and implementation of improvement processes, including:



• Starting with the self: Examining the layers of identity & perspective

• Seeing the system: Examining context & history

• Examining the lens & locus of influence: Elevating authentic voice

• Shifting the paradigm: Valuing process & outcomes
