The Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Interactive Dashboard (3MID) analyzes how budgeting, social determinants of health, medical interventions, and policy can reduce rates of maternal morbidity and mortality across the United States. It incorporates local factors, including state-specific demographics and resources, to enhance outcomes for priority populations that include rural residents, racial and ethnic groups, and groups that have been economically marginalized.
Creating Equity Through Data Driven Systems Thinking

MITRE’s Equity Assessment Framework enables federal agencies to examine programs and policies from the perspective of underserved communities as required by Executive Order 13985. This framework is a systems-based, data-driven approach to equity assessment that incorporates human-centered research, design, and assessment practices. It provides detailed guidance for repeatable and inclusive equity assessments and helps agencies establish ongoing equity-centric planning and implementation processes.
Updated in collaboration between MITRE's Innovation Toolkit (ITK) and Social Justice Platform (SJP), ITK PAINstorming helps improve your team’s understanding of a user’s behaviors, pain points, assumptions, and needs. This worksheet helps focus your team on addressing actual user preferences, and it can also help explore assumptions or unknown gaps about users. In addition, the embedded equity lens helps your team broaden their perspective to consider what else may have historically occurred or be contributing to today’s current status quo. Collectively exploring these additional questions will help your team develop deeper insights about your ideal user and identify more opportunities for innovation.
Developed in collaboration between MITRE's Innovation Toolkit (ITK) and Social Justice Platform (SJP), the ITK Quickstart Stakeholder Engagement canvas is divided into two complementary sides – “Analysis” and “Engagement”. The “Analysis” side of the canvas helps your team identify and assess a stakeholder’s needs, wants, and influence. It also helps your team get clear on their wants and needs, which will help identify where the team’s priorities do or do not match with the stakeholder. The “Engagement” side of the canvas helps your team consider how to approach the first (or next) engagement with the stakeholder. In addition, the embedded equity lens helps your team explore four additional considerations beyond the default to help create more equity-informed engagements. This helps broaden your team’s thinking and raise their collective awareness, both of which can help inspire new thinking and opportunities for innovation.
