Equity Action Collaborative


The Equity Action Collaborative helps to coordinate global collaborations by independent organizations and individuals working on the same specific issues in different countries.

Platforms for Collaboration

Around the world, people are working to create change on many issues related to inequality, from fighting racism to promoting equitable environment and climate policies to building a new economy. IfE’s Equity Action Collaborative provides platforms and coordination to develop global collaborations on these issues through a series of Action Groups.

While most serious efforts to overcome inequality take place at the local or national level, they can often benefit from information-sharing, strategic planning and coordinated action at the global level. The “collective impact” model is a good way to approach these global collaborations. Local and national partners remain independent, but meet periodically to share information and expertise, come up with joint strategies, and coordinate actions as needed.
