The Role of the Community is more important ....... July 2020



The role of community is more important now than ever before.
Seismic shifts across our society—racial justice movements around the world and a pandemic—have further brought to light the socioeconomic and racial inequities embedded in our ecosystems for centuries. As our communities adapt to new realities, the vision of how we support, influence, and design for purpose evolves as well.
In this Open Letter, we’re highlighting stories of resilience across the OpenIDEO community. We’re also spotlighting a program—supporting entrepreneurs in East Africa—that illustrates the value of building community-centered public health services that meet people where they are. 
We’re incredibly inspired by this community—by each of you. Thanks for all that you do, and every single way you’ve shown up and displayed resilience during this uncertain and challenging time. 
With Gratitude,
Alex Nana-Sinkam
OpenIDEO Global Equity Portfolio Lead
