Residential segregation matters immensely, because where people live affects so much of their lives, such as their access to transportation, education, employment opportunities, and good health care.
In the case of black–white segregation in particular, the separateness of African-American families and white families has contributed significantly to two entrenched inequalities that are especially glaring: the enormous wealth gap between these races, and their grossly unequal access to strong public educational opportunities. The Inclusivity Institute is dedicated to developing new partnerships, products, and pilot programs to combat these inequalities in ways that can produce tremendous impact nationwide.
The Inclusivity Institute is engaged creating meaningful pilot programs and working with partners to scale up innovative models that tackle the systemic issues of housing affordability and racial as well as class segregation.
Non-profit organizations like the Inclusivity Institute try to effect positive change directly, by creating innovative programs and developing constructive partnerships with other groups.
Racial, housing, and economic disparities impact the equity of our nation in a variety of manners. At the Inclusivity Institute, we strive to demonstrate the impact that inclusive communities have on the health and wellbeing of people of all backgrounds
