Issues related to health equity, sustainability, social and environmental justice are considered complex or wicked problems. To understand and begin to address these, a strategic leadership toolkit is needed. Week-by-week, this seminar will help build that toolkit. We'll review what wicked problems are, how change happens, and the roles that we can play as public health leaders; we'll revisit methods used to rapidly assess and evaluate the current state, and compare that to the ideal (future) state; we'll practice compiling an evidence base for use to inform actions; and we'll practice professional writing (white papers) and oral pitches. Students will define a project scope, develop a work plan, conduct a literature review, draft a project report outline, identify and accessed relevant data, reviewed data to inform action, and draft a project report that could be submitted to a 'client'.
