10 Principles of Trustworthiness
Deserving trust is crucial to equitably partner with the communities you engage and to achieve health justice.
Remember, though, the process of engagement is as important as the product. Here are 10 principles that community stakeholders endorse as the guiding compass on your journey to establishing trustworthiness.
The Principles of Trustworthiness Toolkit
This toolkit of materials is for organizations to download and use to facilitate discussions within their communities, develop relationships with a broad coalition, and track lessons learned. It includes the kinds of questions, discussions, and activities
that will help an organization and its community to unpack the Principles of Trustworthiness, explore how they come to life locally, and determine what local actions might be taken to demonstrate trustworthiness.
These resources can be used to help build vaccine confidence as part of the AAMC’s cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Learn more about this effort at VaccineVoices.org

The Principles of Trustworthiness Workshops
The 10 Principles of Trustworthiness are the product of local community perspectives combined with established precepts of community engagement. These principles serve as a guide for health care, public health, and other organizations as they work to demonstrate they are worthy of trust.
At this interactive working session, presented by the AAMC Center for Health Justice, participants will learn about and discuss the Principles of Trustworthiness Toolkit and hear experiences of early adopters, as well as from those who have just begun delving into it. Together, we will learn from those who are working to translate the Principles into actions as their organizations build partnerships, foster trust, and work toward health equity in their communities. More information will be released as it becomes available.
