The Community Health Worker (CHW) Leadership Committee will be an ongoing, statewide, multi-stakeholder group that is representative of Washington state and our diverse communities. The majority of the members will be CHWs. The CHW Leadership Committee builds on the 2018-2019 CHW Task Force recommendation to develop infrastructure in the CHW workforce.

The role of the CHW Leadership Committee is to develop key priorities and guidance to inform education, training, and other aspects of the CHW workforce; guide the implementation of the 2018-2019 CHW Task Force recommendations; and inform the CHW role in COVID-19 response and equitable recovery.

To begin the process of developing the CHW Leadership Committee, DOH is creating a Recruitment and Selection Team. The Recruitment and Selection Team will be CHW majority and represent multiple stakeholder groups. The purpose of this team is to develop the selection criteria and process of selecting members for the CHW Leadership Committee. The Recruitment and Selection Team members will also conduct outreach to networks and stakeholders to recruit potential CHW Leadership Committee members.
