How We Work
The Policy Academies operates on three levels:
We promote the individual career success or our Fellows and Alumni - by training and cultivating pipeline of public policy scholars of color to help define, investigate, and propose solutions to the social equity challenges of our time.
We build on-ramps and connections for researcher of color, targeting those who are mainly first-generation college-goers. We leverage institutional expertise and resources, and connect leading policy institutions to a diverse talent pool.
Policy Field Transformation
We will transform the field and ultimately the policy conversation by cultivating a critical mass of researchers and analysts of color and connecting leading policy research institutions to enhance diversity and inclusion efforts across the field.
