The Center for Advancing Racial Equity and Job Quality in Long-Term Care (The Center for Equity) is a national hub for developing innovative workforce policy and fostering narrative change in long-term care (LTC). Our work centers the majority Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) women and immigrant caregiving workforce and confronts the links between systemic racial and gender inequities and poor job quality. We unite diverse stakeholders in service of building the equitable caregiving infrastructure our nation needs.
The Center for Equity is an initiative of the Healthcare Career Advancement Program (H-CAP), a national labor/management organization which works with employers, unions and workers to raise standards across the healthcare industry. The initiative is generously funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
