On September 13th, The Government Alliance on Race and Equity announced a new tool, Racial Equity: Getting to Results, developed to assist jurisdictions use a racial equity lens to identify a set of metrics and implement a community process to have greater impact in their work. On October 2nd, GARE hosted the webinar, Results for Racial Equity, along with Erika Bernabei, which highlighted how jurisdictions can use the tool, Racial Equity: Getting to Results, to connect a racial equity lens to the Results-Based Accountability (RBA) methodology and help empower jurisdictions to make good decisions and advance racial equity. Additionally, this webinar highlighted examples of local government using a Racial Equity: Getting to Results framework.
What is a Racial Equity Results Framework?
An anti-racist, racial equity-focused RBA framework starts with the desired end results and works backward towards the “how” to ensure that Racial Equity Action Plans move toward community results with stakeholder-driven implementation. The RBA framework shows a relationship between whole population level results and community indicators of those desired results to the actions that groups determine will be most effective at producing change in communities. The above mentioned GARE webinar covered how the tool highlights root cause analysis to dig deeply into the sources of racially inequitable outcomes and walks practitioners through best practices of doing this with community stakeholder leadership and offers two short case studies.
