Orange County Grantmakers, in partnership with the St. Joseph Health Community Partnership Fund, has released a new report providing an equity analysis of the Orange County region. It provides insights and data to support Orange County’s efforts to move towards inclusive growth and prosperity, and is a part of a series of reports specific to the six-county Southern California region.
As the first equity profile of its kind in Orange County, data in the report provides a call to action for Orange County business, civic, community and philanthropic leaders to build a stronger, more equitable region. The report is broken down into four sections – demographics, economic vitality, readiness and connectedness. It ends with ten (plus one) clear steps to an equitable Orange County, including using the data for cross-sector dialogue and linking inclusion with innovation.
