AIR Equity Initiative Roundtable – Building Bridges to Equity: Making Diverse Perspectives in Research, Policy, and Technical Assistance the Norm

On February 23, 2022 the AIR Equity Initiative at AIR hosted the second in a series of equity-focused roundtable discussions. A panel of experts explored approaches to reducing bias and promoting diversity and inclusion within organizations and in the grant- and policy-making processes. The experts and AIR staff discussed how these approaches can enhance research and technical assistance and improve policy. A Q&A followed the moderated discussion.

The AIR Equity Initiative supports research and technical assistance and collaborates with 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.
