Course description

Diverse, more equitable societies have the potential to be the most innovative, peaceful, and prosperous in the world. When crafting policies, how can we understand and account for the historical exclusion of women, minority and marginalized groups, and populations with intersecting identities? At this unique moment in the evidence revolution of smart policymaking, leaders have more tools than ever to advance social equity and improve outcomes for all. 

Evidence for Equity is a one-week live online executive program created by Harvard faculty co-chairs Zoe Marks and Teddy Svoronos to enable you to engage in data-driven, evidence-based policymaking through an equity lens. Alongside a global cohort, you will gain the skills needed for diagnosing and analyzing inequalities, and tackling and transforming them to achieve more inclusive and effective policy outcomes.
