In this edition of HPS Insights, HPS Partner Tony Fratto and Senior Director Stephanie Dodge host Fanta Traore, CEO and Co-Founder of the Sadie Collective, and Young-Chan Lim and Doug Ortiz, members of the working group for the Cross-Policy School White Paper on Anti-Racism, for a conversation on racial equity in graduate public policy programs. 

The next generation of policymakers is being shaped by racial equity & inclusion (REI) efforts within their own university programs. Fanta, Young-Chan, and Doug discuss the new white paper, which draws on input from students across the country to offer recommendations for making graduate public policy programs more inclusive. 

The group also discusses how using a REI lens over a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) lens can lead to better outcomes, both for students of color at public policy programs and policymaking itself.
