This Monthly Musing will cover the ongoing efforts that State and local governments have made to incorporate social equity in policy decision-making. As a follow-up to last year’s discussion on this topic, we will discuss how State and local governments have addressed social equity during the COVID-19 pandemic, adopting State and local social equity budgeting tools and lessons at the federal level, and the long-term outlook of racial equity analysis in budgeting. Our experts for this musing include:

  • Sarah Treuhaft, Vice President on Research at PolicyLink
  • Christopher Meyer, Research Analyst, Maryland Center on Economic Policy
  • Ann E. Futrell, Senior Adviser at the Congressional Budget Office (moderator)

AABPA’s Monthly Musings is a free webinar series featuring diverse leaders from across the budgeting and financial management community. Experts discuss major challenges in their careers and how they navigated them, followed by a moderated Q&A open to all participants.
