CCORE Learning Cohort

A foundational racial equity learning cohort for California state government workers.

CCORE Transformative Leadership Cohort

A leadership development cohort that centers the learning of Black, Indigeneous, and People of Color (BIPOC) who are racial equity practitioners in their organizations and institutions.

CCORE is a community of California state government leaders integrating racial equity into institutional culture, policies, and practices. State of Equity launched CCORE in 2018 in support of a commitment by the California Health in All Policies (HiAP) Task Force to increase the capacity of state entities to advance health and racial equity.  

So far, over 40 state organizations and 400 government employees have participated in CCORE’s multi-organization cohorts to support learning, planning, peer-exchange, and implementation of new institutional practices to advance racial equity. CCORE consists of two cohorts, the Learning Cohort which is our foundational multi-racial learning cohort and in 2023 the new pilot CCORE Transformative Leadership Cohort that centers Indigenous, Black and People of Color government workers. 

State of Equity is grateful to many institutional and community partners that support CCORE, including the California Strategic Growth Council, which serves as the state government host, and Race Forward, the Government Alliance on Race and Equity who supports our CCORE Learning Cohort, and our many facilitators that provide essential subject matter expertise and facilitation in our cohort spaces.
