Toolbox Tuesday

Equity Series: Youth Empowerment


Join us June 27 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. for another session in the Toolbox Tuesday Equity Series where researchers, leaders and participants of youth empowerment programs will share their experiences to demonstrate how to integrate and institutionalize systems to improve racial equity.  

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light many disparities at different levels. Persistent gaps in wealth between households of different racial or ethnic backgrounds reveal the effects of accumulated inequality and discrimination, as well as the drastic differences in power and opportunity for people of color. In July 2020, SCAG’s Regional Council adopted a resolution affirming its commitment to meaningfully advance justice, equity, diversity and inclusion, and staff developed a Racial Equity Early Action Plan (EAP) to help facilitate the consistent integration of equity into its planning work.  In March 2022, SCAG released the Equity Resource Guide (ERG), a collection of local, state, and national examples of practices and approaches to advance equity. The Toolbox Tuesday Equity Series trainings and discussions focus on the three strategies outlined in the EAP and ERG. 

Date/Time: June 27, 2023, 1 – 2:30 p.m. Pacific Time (US and Canada)
