Event description

Description

The City of Tacoma, Office of Equity and Human Rights, Tacoma 2025 and in partnership with The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity has designed an Equity Index to help with data driven policy decisions and create a more equitable and inclusive Tacoma where all people have the opportunity to succeed. The Index scores each census block and comprised of 20 indicators focusing on four Tacoma 2025 goals areas: Accessibility, Economy, Education, and Livability. This presentation will walk participants through the equity index process, which employs a participatory design approach and focus on how local data can be incorporated into these indexes to achieve a more nuanced understanding of local equity and opportunity priorities. Next, participants will explore the tool and learn firsthand how such a tool can be used to craft equitable policy at the city and neighborhood scale through examples employed by the City of Tacoma.
