Equity and Social Justice Strategic Plan
From King County’s Website
King County has produced a draft of our first strategic plan for Equity and Social Justice (ESJ). The draft plan is a blueprint for change that will guide our policies and decision-making, design and delivery of services, and workplace practices in order to advance equity and social justice within County government and in partnership with communities in our region.
Following an extensive six-month outreach effort prior to developing the plan and a six-month review by leaders and subject matter experts representing all County departments and agencies, the Equity and Social Justice Strategic Plan has been mutually created by King County employees and community partners.
The six-year Equity and Social Justice Strategic Plan represents a critical opportunity for King County to do ground-breaking work:
- Applying a theory of change that fundamentally shifts the County away from policies and practices that react to problems and crises toward investments that address the root causes of inequities, ultimately leading to better quality of life and greater prosperity in all of our communities.
- Balancing a bold vision with actionable and measurable objectives.
- Allowing for flexibility, innovation and adaptability across King County government to help us be dynamic and culturally responsive.
