Join the White House for a virtual convening on equity this Thursday, April 14th as more than 90 federal agencies—including all Cabinet-level agencies—release their first-ever Equity Action Plans, as called for in President Biden’s historic Executive Order on Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government.
On his first day in office, President Biden signed an Executive Order directing the federal government to advance an ambitious equity and racial justice agenda that matches the scale of the challenges we face and the opportunities before us.
This Thursday, Ambassador Susan Rice, Director of the Domestic Policy Council, Shalanda Young, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, and members of President Biden’s Cabinet will lay out concrete strategies and commitments that agencies are releasing to address the systemic barriers in our nation’s policies and programs that hold too many underserved communities back from prosperity, dignity, and equality. National equity leaders will also participate in the convening.
These Equity Action Plans will expand federal investment and support in communities who have been locked out of opportunity for too long, including communities of color, Tribal communities, rural communities, LGBTQI+ communities, disability communities, communities of faith, women and girls, and communities impacted by persistent poverty.
