Issues of social inequality, racism and economic disparity remain at the forefront of the most serious challenges facing America. The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified their complexity and diminished the confidence and resources of many Americans, yielding serious implications for our nation’s overall health, security and social cohesion. Moreover, business, government and civil sectors have put forth few sustainable solutions.
To move beyond publishing research and reports, ASU is launching a new kind of academic endeavor — An ASU Center for the Future of Equality — to create tangible and useful products that communities can use to help reduce the effects of inequality.
Please join us at the virtual launch event where the center will unveil additional details, including the full name, and hear from ASU President Michael M. Crow, other university leaders, and Executive Director Ehsan Zaffar, about the inception and realization of this initiative. They will also share plans for 2021 and opportunities for collaboration.
