Upstream Investments Policy Committee
Who Are We?
The Upstream Investments Policy Committee is chartered by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors. The Committee works to advance evidence-informed, prevention-focused approaches with the highest potential to improve education, health and economic wellness for all Sonoma County residents. In addition, the Committee monitors movement on shared community-level outcomes across a number of programs. Working with our partners in Sonoma County, the Committee addresses inequities and other social determinants of health by supporting research and policies that promote systems improvements using Results-Based Accountability as a principle framework. The Committee bolsters organizational capacity building and embeds a racial equity and inclusion values into our overall mission and scope.
Members serve as a conduit between the committee and the community (community-based organizations, local philanthropy, County agencies, and others) to increase the implementation and funding of evidence-informed and prevention focused approaches, policies and system change efforts to improve the well-being of all.
The Committee aims for diverse leaders who implement or fund evidence-informed, prevention-focused approaches and represent multiple sectors. To ensure that the Committee can effectively fulfill its duties, successfully promote community-wide investments that center racial equity and cultivate a county where poverty is eliminated and residents are ensured equal opportunity for quality education and good health, the member representing each organization will have experience in a leadership role. We value leaders who inspire their community through lived experience, thrive by finding and nurturing potential in people and/or lead an organization in the traditional sense.
