What if we understood our country’s most pressing challenges as symptoms of inequitable access to wellbeing? What new solutions emerge when we focus change where it belongs: on systems themselves, not the people caught up in them?
Join the Wellbeing Blueprint and Full Frame Initiative with leaders from systems and communities for an interactive conversation about designing equitable access to wellbeing. Organizations including The Right Question Institute, FRESH New London, the Massachusetts Women of Color Network, and USC’s Keck School of Medicine will share their experience putting wellbeing design principles into practice. Tune in to learn about how organizations design programs and initiatives with wellbeing at the center, how they work past barriers, and what this approach has unlocked for themselves and their communities.
We don’t know what it looks like to live in a country where everyone has a fair shot at wellbeing. But we know what it takes to get there, and leaders across the country are doing just that. Join From Principles to Practice: Designing Equitable Access to Wellbeing to see examples of wellbeing in action that can help you unlock new solutions in your work to change systems.
Director of Legal Empowerment Program, The Right Question Institute
Naomi Campbell is the director of the Legal Empowerment Program at the Right Question Institute (RQI). She supports legal professionals working in low-income communities, who use RQI’s methods to help their clients feel greater self-efficacy and independence, partner more effectively with service providers, and advocate for themselves, in the legal system and beyond. Prior to joining RQI, Naomi was a legal fellow with Centro de los Derechos del Migrante (CDM) in Mexico City, where she supported migrant workers in defending their rights as they moved between their home communities in Mexico and their places of work in the United States. She has also represented asylum-seekers and was a teaching assistant for cross-disciplinary negotiation and dispute resolution courses. She earned her J.D. cum laude from Harvard Law School and is a member of the New York Bar.
Executive Director, FRESH New London
Alicia came to FRESH New London with a background in Community Organizing. She worked for two years as our Farm to School Coordinator before coming into leadership as the Executive Director. As Executive Director, Alicia is responsible for every aspect of FRESH– from the big grants to the tiny worms. She wished she could get into the urban farm work more often but enjoys the work of connecting families, community partners, and civic groups, to build momentum for food system change.
Senior Program Manager, FRESH New London
Born in Puerto Rico and raised in New London from the age of 3, my heart belongs to this small city. I started at FRESH during my freshman year of high school as a Crew member and worked my way up to Assistant Farmer, then Youth Organizer, and now Senior Program Manager. By supporting the voices of youth and helping to grow the food put on families’ dinner tables, I am proud to say I am a part of growing (pun intended) a better, more sustainable future for New London.
