from our founder

Peer Health Exchange began as a pilot program in 1999 when a New Haven public school teacher asked Yale college students to fill the gap for health education in his under-resourced school. As a founding college student health educator, I saw firsthand the power of young people showing up for other young people on critical health issues. Together, we were able to begin empowering young people with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to make healthy decisions.

When I co-founded Peer health Exchange in 2003, my goal was to build on the early promise of this near peer model and partner with other communities to meet their needs. But in the early years of PHE, I recruited too many college students and staff who looked like me—white women—and not enough Black and Latinx college students who shared the backgrounds of the young people we served. Not only did that mean we were not getting the most diverse talent, but it also meant that we weren’t showing up for young people to the full extent we could.With that goal in mind, I was proud to support laying the foundation and, later, observe the results as Peer Health Exchange worked hard to close this distance at every level of the organization, starting with volunteers and staff.

Over the past years, an increased number of PHE Volunteers  [are there still volunteers?] and Fellows have shared identities and backgrounds with the young people they serve. Led by Osayuware (Tina) Enagbare, Peer Health Exchange’s Chief Operating Officer, formally Head of Talent, and the senior leadership team, great progress has been made in representation among PHE staff across race and socio-economic background.  Currently, 70% of team members identify as people of color, and 93% of staff feel like Peer Health Exchange is a supportive and inclusive place to work.Today, I am proud to watch PHE take its equity, diversity and inclusion strategy to the next level under the leadership of Dr. Angela Glymph as CEO, alongside the Executive Team. I am confident that PHE’s DEI work will be stronger than ever.
