The live presentation has passed, but we invite you to register to receive access to the event guide and recording.

Many of us understand the importance of equity, but how can we make sure that it's truly reflected in our actions and our work?


At The Center for Implementation (TCI), we hear all the time from implementers about the difficulties they face when it comes to being more equitable in their implementation practice. 


What's often missing is that first step of recognizing the equity issues that are inherent to implementation.


In this free virtual workshop, we are going to introduce you to multiple perspectives that show you how to approach equity in implementation and get closer to embodying these essential principles for real-life impact.


We will give you tools to make sense of the equity landscape.


This workshop will not be a presentation of a single framework or model for equity.



We will cover:


How to explore your mental models

What being inclusive really means

What questions are effective for guiding you in your equity work

How to have courage and embrace vulnerability in order to admit when you might not have the right answers



We will incorporate expert advice in the form of equity theories, models, frameworks, and approaches that can help guide you on multiple implementation journeys.

If you want to adopt an equity mindset in your implementation practice, this workshop is for you.

If you're already doing equity work, we hope that you can join us to share your expertise.


You might be a manager, a leader, a clinician, an administrator, a community member, a funder, an intermediary, or an applied researcher/trainee.


Whatever your role, we've got a space for you at this workshop.


You do NOT have to have a comprehensive understanding of implementation science and practice to attend.


But if you’re curious, you can take Inspiring Change 2.0, our free mini-course that gives you a taste of how we view implementation science and practice.

We will take you on 3 journeys to help you embed equity practices and principles into your implementation work.



In Journey 1, we will follow a relational pathway to talk about the questions that are important to ask ourselves when we’re convening as a team, when we’re working with one another as a team, and when we’re working with people across the implementation system to help us bring an equity focus to our work.





In Journey 2, we will explore a technical pathway for designing interventions and programs and highlight the equity questions and considerations that we may have at each of those points.





In Journey 3, we will focus on implementation, spread, and scale and how equity can be considered across each of the different steps needed to complete this journey.



Across each of these journeys, we will share the work that we've been doing at TCI to help you understand what equity theories, models, frameworks and approaches can be used at different points of implementation — making your use of these theories, models frameworks and approaches more purposeful.



Practical Guidance for Embodying Equity in Implementation includes:


  • A 2-hour live virtual workshop on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 (12:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET), led by TCI's senior staff, Dr. Sobia Khan and Dr. Julia Moore (recorded in case you are not able to attend live)


  • A description of key pathways in implementation and invaluable guiding questions to help you better understand equity at each point


  • Practical guidance on how to effectively incorporate equity theories, models, frameworks, and approaches while you are implementing


  • An event guide that's yours to keep containing the main concepts and connections made in the workshop by the TCI team


  • Important considerations to help you develop a deeper understanding of how to truly make equity part of your implementation work (and not an add-on)


Our Approach


We are "topic agnostic" in how we approach implementation and will similarly take an "equity agnostic" approach in this workshop. There will not be one type of equity that we'll be focusing on.


Our expertise is in bridging the gap between implementation science and implementation practice. We are not equity experts nor are we pretending to be. We are making sense of equity in our implementation work like so many of you are. We will be presenting on what we know, will acknowledge what we don’t, and would love to hear from and collaborate with those of you who have been working towards equity for much longer than we have.



We know that equity is an integral part of any change effort. It cannot be an afterthought. We can all be better at bringing equity principles to the forefront of our daily implementation work.

About Us

The Center for Implementation (TCI) operates from the view that knowledge generated from implementation science — the research behind how best to implementation change — should be in the hands of practitioners in organizations, communities, and systems.

 

We make the science of implementation practical and accessible. Our mission and moral imperative are to ensure that people around the world are applying theory and evidence-informed change methods to improve outcomes.

TCI was founded in 2018 and has been growing rapidly ever since. This expansion is driven by our international reputation for producing clear and practical guidance on applying implementation science that enhances change efforts across various fields and sectors.


Our expertise is in developing innovative processes that are informed by implementation science and designed for creating real-world change.

 

Dr. Julia E. Moore and Dr. Sobia Khan, TCI’s senior members, have built a bridge between implementation science and implementation practice by synthesizing and translating complex implementation science concepts into easy-to-understand actionable steps.


Our true specialization lies in how we train, support, and empower professionals working to make change in organizations and systems to implement in more evidence-based ways (i.e., drawing from what works to foster individual, organizational, and systems change).

Dr. Sobia Khan

Director of Implementation

Dr. Sobia Khan is a global expert on how to practically implement complex interventions in complex systems. For over 12 years, her passion for integrating implementation science, systems thinking, and complexity theory to achieve large-scale change has been illustrated through her work on multiple implementation projects in Canada, the U.S., Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, Myanmar, and Kosovo. In addition, Dr. Khan is internationally recognized for transforming the landscape of implementation science training by distilling difficult concepts into actionable resources.


Recent highlights of Dr. Khan’s work include supporting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on their implementation science objectives.


Dr. Khan emphasizes pragmatic and equity-driven approaches as much of her work focuses on supporting vulnerable populations. She strives to ensure that all perspectives are valued along the implementation pathway with a particular understanding of the need for collective action to create system-level change.


She holds an MPH from the University of Waterloo and a PhD from the Institute for Health Policy, Management and Evaluation at the University of Toronto.

Dr. Julia Moore

Executive Director

Dr. Julia E. Moore is an award-winning expert on the practical applications of implementation science. As the Executive Director of The Center for Implementation, she is internationally known for her ability to communicate complex implementation science concepts in clear and actionable ways.


Dr. Moore was trained as an implementation scientist at Penn State University where she received her PhD in Human Development and researched the best methods to implement evidence-based programs.


Dr. Moore's experience in the field spans more than a decade and includes working on over 100 implementation projects in 8 countries. Her passion for supporting the real-world use of implementation science is shown through her commitment to the spread and scale of accessible training: Dr. Moore has led and designed tailored courses and workshops for over 4000 professionals from a wide range of fields. She also developed the popular online mini-course, Inspiring Change: Creating Impact with Evidence-based Implementation, which has been completed by over 6000 professionals from around the globe.

You might be wondering...



What if I can’t attend the live virtual workshop?


That's okay! If you register, you'll have access to the recording following the event.



How will this be different from other webinars I've attended on equity and/or implementation?


Our webinars are known for being highly interactive — we want to share with you but we also want you to share with us. Moreover, we take a pragmatic approach and therefore have explored equity with questions that are similar to the ones that you have had in your work. We hope the webinar really resonates with your own implementation experiences.



Is there anything I should take a look at prior to the workshop?


You do NOT have to have a comprehensive understanding of implementation science and practice, or equity, to attend.

But if you’re curious, you can take Inspiring Change 2.0, our free mini-course that gives you a taste of how we view implementation science and practice (and a sense of our delivery style).

Moreover, as we mentioned above, our webinars are highly interactive so it may help to be prepared to listen and contribute to the discussion.



How long do I have to access the recording of the webinar?


You will have access to the recording indefinitely.



Where can I find out more about your other courses?


We have several courses that we've designed to be highly practical for your implementation work — regardless of the field or sector you're in. To learn more about how our training can help you lead change, visit our website.



Is there a way I can be notified about upcoming TCI activities?


Yes! We would love to connect with you. Please follow us on Twitter @TCI_ca and sign up for our mailing list.

You can reach us at [email protected].

The course provided the models, theories, and frameworks that I needed to better organize my thoughts and plan for our future programs.


It helped me connect the dots between research, theory, and the experiences of our team on the ground.


By offering a curated collection of the best implementation tools available, Julia and Sobia did all the heavy-lifting, saving me countless hours of sifting through the literature.

Equity is a social process. We can't interact with one another in any meaningful ways without being equitable, and without working in a context that is just. We can be more equitable in implementation, and use implementation to be more equitable — let's work together to see how we can achieve this.
