It is necessary that the design, implementation, and maintenance of physical activity-promoting neighborhoods be equitable across social, economic, and demographic characteristics. The Equity and Inclusion Work Group aims to define, describe, and guide equitable physical activity policies and evaluation. This includes but is not limited to: which neighborhoods receive policy or funding priority; understanding the resilience of communities to changes in the physical environment; housing and economic impacts of physical activity policy changes; (in)equality in neighborhood resources for physical activity; inclusionary practices for community engagement in the policy process.
