Developing Equity Leadership through Training and Action (DELTA)

DELTA is a health equity and inclusion leadership program that includes training, coaching, and networking to health, community, and policy leaders in Oregon. This nine-month program trains 25 members committed to advancing health equity and diversity throughout Oregon.

DELTA provides 40 hours of classroom training, 10 hours of individualized technical assistance, and faciliates opportunities for cross-sector partnership. Each participant submits a project prior to graduation that drives and institutionalizes best practices in their organizations that promotes health equity and inclusion. Applications for the next statewide cohort (Oct 2017 - May 2018) will be available in August 2017. Note that the DELTA program is shifting its funding model due to the closeout of previous grant funding.

Applications for the next DELTA cohort are now open! 

The DELTA program is proud to announce recruitment for our next cohort. The training will be for eight months and participants will meet for one or two full days per month, from October 2017 - May 2018, while concurrently working on health equity-related projects to bring back to their respective organizations. Applications are open for this DELTA for health leaders from all Oregon counties. Apply by 5:00 pm on September 8th, 2017

DELTA is a comprehensive health equity and inclusion leadership program that strategically provides training, coaching and consultation to health, community and policy leaders in Oregon.
