Equity isn't just about outcomes -- it's about building new ways of thinking and working to make those outcomes possible. While our citywide projects target structural reforms that require collaboration, there are many practices that individual organizations can use to promote equity in their work. The 2019 CUE Fellows spent nine months mapping out the reforms their organizations can lead to support a more equitable city. Dig into the playbook they developed and let the lessons they learned inspire your efforts.
