EQUITY AUDITS

We have developed 80+ measures for an algorithm that quantifies a jurisdiction’s commitment to equity based on spending patterns across agencies. Our Equity Audit measures include evidence-based approaches that have been scientifically proven to break cycles of poverty like two generational models that upskill parents while providing academic, social and emotional support to kids inside and outside of school. We also measure authentic power sharing with communities of color.

EQUITY-CENTERED BUDGETS

Using the Equity Audit as a guidepost, we then prioritize how to make enhancements to the budgeting cycle with a focus on equity and economic mobility. We offer many budget neutral solutions that redirect existing resources.
