Diversity, Equity & Inclusion for the Workforce: A Look at a Public Agency’s Strategy

How does a city department identify, understand, develop, and implement a racial equity plan to help rectify the systemic racism that has been prevalent in our history and built environment?

San Francisco has been shaped by a history that has included bias, discrimination, and systemic racism. Confronting these issues is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Constructing a new anti-racist foundation for our 121-year-old department, San Francisco Public Works, will not happen overnight and it will not be smooth. Not only must we overcome bureaucratic hurdles, but also deeply personal ones. This webinar will review the steps our department has taken in the formation and implementation of our Racial Equity Initiative, the lessons we are learning, and where we hope to go to create a more equitable city. Presented by the Public Architects Committee.
