W.K. Kellogg Foundation's workforce composition and how it has changed over time.
The United States economy could be $8 trillion larger by 2050 if the country eliminated racial disparities in health, education, incarceration and employment, according to "The Business Case for Racial Equity: A Strategy for Growth." The gains would be equivalent to a continuous boost in GDP growth of 0.5 percent per year, increasing the competitiveness of the country for decades to come. The national study released today by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) and Altarum concludes that while racial inequities needlessly stifle economic growth, there is a path forward.The report projects a tremendous boost to the country's workforce and consumer spending when organizations take the necessary steps to advance racial equity. Led by Ani Turner, co-director of Sustainable Health Spending Strategies at Altarum, researchers analyzed data from public and private sources, including the U.S. Census, Johns Hopkins University, Georgetown University, Brandeis University and Harvard University. Their methodology included applying established models to estimate the economic impact of the disparities faced by people of color.
HR Toolkit for Racial EquityThe W.K. Kellogg Foundation's (WKKF) organizational commitment to advancing racial equity, diversity and inclusion has been a multi-decade journey. One area of significant progress is in our human resources (HR) policies and practices. Over the years, leaders and organizations have sought out our HR team to ask about our internal strategies – what we've tried, what we've learned and what actions we are taking as a result of our commitments. WKKF created this toolkit to share our experiences, lessons and recommended tools and resources for implementing racial equity strategies as part of a human resources function. The toolkit complements the foundation's "ONE Journey" publication, which shares the foundation's larger racial equity, diversity and inclusion (REDI) efforts more fully.

The Decentralized Wastewater Innovation (DWI) Cohort is a nationwide community-driven research initiative by DigDeep Right to Water Project elevating decentralized wastewater challenges, solutions, and policy opportunities. Given the unique intersection of (1) unprecedented federal funding for decentralized and alternative wastewater solutions, (2) the complex landscape of residential infrastructure needs, and (3) the diverse, comprehensive expertise of the DWI Cohort, the Cohort recommends the following policy opportunities for federal agency consideration:1. Develop an accurate count and map of decentralized wastewater system deficiencies in the US; use this improved data to drive resource allocation to increase the efficiency and impact of federal and state programming.2. Expand and improve outreach programs to impacted communities and households to reduce access barriers to funding mechanisms.3. Prioritize regulatory support and funding for alternative technologies to improve access to affordable and effective decentralized wastewater systems.4. Invest in long-term relationships with impacted communities and households to improve compliance, ensure longevity, deepen cultural integration, and improve public health outcomes.
