What Does Segregation Cost Us? What Can We Do About It? – 1 PD Hour

Open to the entire campus community, Dr. Amy T. Khare, PhD, MSW and research affiliate for the National Initiative on Mixed-Income Communities at the Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, will present her latest paper Fair Housing and Inclusive Communities, part of the Grand Challenges for Social Work.

What is the cost of racial and economic segregation? How is segregation in cities, such as Cleveland, changing over time? What approaches can be taken to address both concentrated poverty in communities of color and concentrated affluence in predominately white communities? How can social workers organize to advance inclusion and equity across different communities?

Khare will share her finding from her latest Cost of Segregation research, conducted with the Urban Institute, that quantifies the economic cost of racial and economic segregation. She will, also,  preview a set of policies and strategies she is developing to advance equity and inclusion within a variety of neighborhoods.
