Port of Seattle Equity Index Training: Tuesday, October 5, 2021 | 10:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. via Microsoft Teams
Want to make your community more inclusive and equitable? The Port recently launched its Equity Index to understand social and environmental disparities that exist within the region to help direct resources towards the areas of greatest need. The interactive mapping tool will be used Port-wide to equitably guide funding decisions for the South King County Fund (SKCF) and other port programs and initiatives, and broadly inform policy decisions across the Port. Community members and organizations can now access the Port of Seattle’s Equity Index to learn more about their communities and distribute resources where they are needed most. Join Alison Beason, Sr Data & Policy Analyst in the Port of Seattle’s Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion for a virtual training on the Port of Seattle’s Equity Index and how to make it work for you and your organization.
