AIR Equity Initiative Roundtable – Bridges Toward Equity: Making Workforce Development Work for All

On Tuesday, September 28, 2021, 2:00–3:00 PM ET, AIR launched the AIR Equity Initiative.

Through this five-year initiative, AIR is committing $100M+ toward behavioral and social science research and technical assistance to address the underlying causes of systemic inequity and to increase opportunities for people and society.

In the first of a series of roundtable discussions focused on equity, a panel of AIR and community experts shared how they will partner to pursue an agenda to increase economic mobility and prosperity for the many Americans who are currently being left behind. A live Q&A followed the moderated panel discussion.

 

 

Also discussed was our bold commitment to deploy AIR’s research and technical assistance expertise with community partners to improve lives by tackling the issues at the core of our national conversation on racial equity: workforce development, education, public safety and policing, and health.
