When trying to anticipate the impacts of new programs or practices, many organizations struggle to identify the correct lens in which to understand how proposed changes may impact equity within the communities they serve. The San Francisco Environment Department has developed a new tool to analyze the equity impacts of proposed policies or programs, known as a “Racial Equity Program and Policy Scan.” Join the NCRA DEI Committee to learn more about this tool, why you should strive for equity, how it is used, and practice performing an equity scan yourself.
