Equity Analysis Protocol

About the Protocol

shutterstock 1903105546 1The WWPS Equity Analysis Protocol was developed to ensure explicit and intentional review when considering policies, programs or initiatives. According to Nelson and Brooks (2016), equity protocols provide a mechanism by which to:

  • eliminate inequities 
  • identify clear goals, objectives and measurable outcomes
  • engage community in decision-making processes
  • identify who will benefit or be burdened by a given decision by examining and mitigating potential unintended consequences
  • develop mechanisms for successful implementation and evaluation of impact

Equity Review Instructions

Lead facilitator/reviewer and additional review members(if applicable) complete the description page, rate the extent to which the information being reviewed reflects the specific domain and provide rationale for your rating. If completed in partnership with a member of the district's Equity department, complete the recommendation/consideration section together. Otherwise, submit completed protocol to the WWPS Equity Department who will review and provide feedback for consideration.
