Centering Racial Equity In Data Strategies

MBK Leadership Forum


This roundtable presents findings of a toolkit collaboratively generated by a workgroup of civic data stakeholders convened by Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy at the University of Pennsylvania. The roundtable will include the lead author of the toolkit and sites featured as “Work in Action” within the toolkit, Baltimore City & Mecklenburg County. All three sites have collaboratively generated legal frameworks that support the sharing of cross-sector data. These data are disaggregated by race and gender, and regularly communicated to the public, with the goal of supporting program and policy improvement.

Expected Outcome

Viewers will understand how local mayors navigate the challenges of ensuring their cities can best support boys and young men of color.
