WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Academy of Public Administration and Baruch College’s Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs today kicked off a two-day conference (June 12-13) on Promoting Equality in an Age of Austerity: The Role for State and Local Governments, focused on best practices designed to achieve racial, gender, economic, and other forms of equity in the current state of reduced budgets.

The conference is live-streamed here, with a schedule of events found here.

“We are excited that this conference is exploring ways that states and localities can effectively address inequality despite ongoing budgetary austerity,” said Teresa W. Gerton, President and CEO of the National Academy of Public Administration. “As the government continues to look for ways to achieve equity across racial, gender and economic lines, the conversations taking place today and tomorrow are vital to that effort.”
