This Tip Sheet is part of a series offered through the Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership (CCCNP) to assist Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) coalitions assess whether they are inclusive and representative of the communities they serve when working to improve cancer outcomes in their state, tribal nation or territory.
Use this resource as a “checklist” to assess your coalition’s effectiveness in creating an inclusive
environment and to develop a work plan for coalition-wide improvements. Not all CCC coalitions
are alike. A coalition should work together to choose the considerations most helpful to the
specific context, priorities and needs of the coalition and the communities it serves. Remember
that achieving equity is a cyclical and iterative process dependent on the context and readiness of
all involved partners. Inclusivity and equity-focused considerations provided below were
adapted from Melody Goodman’s engagement principles.
