20+ resources for understanding the past, acknowledging the present, and building a more equitable future

Equity is a process and practice of awareness, understanding, acknowledgement, action, accountability, and repair. In health, as in other areas, building a more equitable future will require examining both past wrongs and current inequities; it will also mean designing new systems that help us pinpoint and correct structural failures. The Luminary Labs team has curated a selection of resources to help leaders and decision-makers understand the past, acknowledge the present, and plot a path forward.
