Advancing Workforce Equity

The Advancing Workforce Equity project is a multi-year collaboration between the National Equity Atlas, Lightcast, the National Fund for Workforce Solutions, and various local organizations, with support from JPMorgan Chase. We define workforce equity as a labor market in which racial income gaps are eliminated, all jobs are good jobs, and everyone who wants to work has access to family-supporting employment.

This project includes two national reports and nine regional analyses bringing together the unparalleled equity data disaggregation of the National Equity Atlas, the real-time labor market analytics of Lightcast, and the local wisdom and insights of leaders working on the ground to advance workforce equity and build an inclusive economy.

National Reports

Our national-level reports provide disaggregated data on racial inequities in workforce outcomes, the economic impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the projected effects of automation on US workers and jobs, disaggregated by race and ethnicity.

Local Reports

At the local level, we have worked closely with local leaders to analyze tailored workforce data, identify the key drivers of inequity, and prioritize actionable strategies to advance equity through their policy efforts, programs, and investments.
