Racial Equity

Local governments across the globe are using location-based data and technology to build a more equitable and just world where a person's race or ethnicity does not impact their outcomes. The technology provides insight into patterns of inequality and brings communities together around a common understanding to drive change.

Many local communities have developed equity plans, cocreated with employees and community partners, that serve as a road map for action and change. They serve as a guide for pro-equity policies, planning, services, and work practices that advance equity in a community and address institutional racism to ensure opportunities exist for all constituents. The plans develop goals and outcomes that will result in improvements for all groups, but the strategies are targeted based on the needs of a specific group. Promoting the plans and communicating progress on key initiatives or programs is critical to any pro-equity agenda.
