The Washington Center for Equitable Growth seeks to collect demographic data on race, ethnicity, and gender identity from all of our stakeholders to further our mission of advancing evidence-backed ideas and policies that promote strong, stable, and broad-based economic growth. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are critical to our full understanding of inequality and growth.
 
Equitable Growth is committed to using self-reported data, but does not share individually identifiable information or discriminate based on race, ethnicity, or gender identity. We do analyze aggregated data and share it with stakeholders (e.g. advisory bodies, institutional partners, etc.) to gain actionable insights into how our programming can become more equitable and inclusive. Thank you for your voluntary support in helping Equitable Growth achieve our mission.
