Problem We Are Working to Solve
Nearly all professions in the U.S. are over-represented by historically privileged communities. Marginalized groups continue to be disproportionately represented in America's professional class.
African Americans are underrepresented in 10 out of 11 professional categories in the U.S.; Latinx communities are underrepresented in 11 out of 11!
Higher education has successfully made access to college equitable; however, inequity persists regarding access to highly ranked universities, enrollment in highly employable degrees, graduation rates, and career placement.
