Ethics and Equity in Capacity Building - Webinar


Description and Objectives: Prevention professionals are well aware of the importance of community engagement in capacity building.  For without the resources of their partners, it is nearly impossible to bring about successful prevention interventions for substance misuse.  However, due to the delicate nature of relationships and power differentials, prevention professionals may find themselves walking carefully around matters of inequity so as to not be seen as too controversial or to lose their “good standing” with power players. This lack of response to injustices only serves to sustain the disparities experienced by certain populations within their communities.  In the discussion of ethics in building capacity, we must consider holding partners and systems accountable to these populations with lived inequitable experiences while utilizing tools to measure and raise the current standing of key stakeholders of our prevention efforts.
