Race Equity & Justice Workgroup
Baltimore Area Evaluators is launching a Race Equity & Justice workgroup to develop and advance a plan targeting reform of data, evaluation, and research infrastructures in Baltimore that historically have and continue today to maintain and perpetuate racism.
We aim to develop tools and resources that data professionals can use in our everyday practices that lead to more just practices. If you are interested in joining as a thought partner and collaborator in this process, please contact the BAE Board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
