This report seeks to inform the next phase of Living Cities’ racial equity and inclusion work, and we hope it is useful to other organizations wrestling with how to better operationalize racial equity and inclusion in their own work.

This report is the capstone project of the Racial Equity and Inclusion Learning Question Team. It captures themes from the team’s field and internal scan, as well as what we have learned from our grantmaking and investments in cities across the country–what we call applied research, and seeks to inform the next phase of Living Cities’ racial equity and inclusion work. We also hope that this report might be useful to other organizations wrestling with how to better operationalize racial equity and inclusion in their own work.
