Tools for Social Change The National Equity Atlas

Our country is becoming more diverse, yet ingrained racial inequities remain wide and persistent. This reality makes it imperative that foundations prioritize grantmaking on strategies that promote equity, or fair and just inclusion. The National Equity Atlas, developed by PolicyLink and the Program for Environmental and Regional Equity at the University of Southern California, is a first-of-its-kind data and policy tool for those working to build an economy that is equitable, resilient, and prosperous—in regions, states, and nationwide. During this webinar, our speakers will describe the equity framework, take you on a tour of the Atlas, and share examples of how foundations can employ equity data and policy strategies to foster inclusive growth. Learn how to share this tool with your grantees to strengthen their work and advance your own equity agenda.
