Building Equity Into Your Program Design - Online Instructor-Led Training Course

When:  Mar 21, 2023 from 11:00 AM to 01:30 PM (ET)

This training will be covered over the course of 2 days. Both days will consist of 2.5 hours of learning time.

Utilities design programs with a specific outcome in mind. Typical desired outcomes are hitting savings goals and spending targets or transforming the market. Sometimes utilities design programs to address needs in specific segments like low-income, small business, or agriculture. Seldom do programs measure success by equity or inclusiveness because it is difficult to measure and then evaluate. In this course, attendees will define what equity means to them and their organizations, understand why upfront data collection is critical to planning equitable programs and conducting evaluations, and understand how to apply an equity lens to program design or redesign.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe what an equitable program is and is not.
  • Identify your baseline with data.
  • Identify data collection and research methodologies.
  • Integrate and leverage data in equitable program design.
  • Measure your success.
