Cultural Impact Study in Seattle

Project Lead: Diana Falchuk

Location: Seattle, WA

Partner Organizations: City of Seattle Racial Equity Lab

Description: This project will embed a Cultural Impact Study within the City of Seattle’s Racial Equity Toolkit (RET) and provide guidance on using creative, culture-based formats in the RET process. The RET is an iterative tool that analyzes how a proposed policy, program, initiative or budgetary decision can achieve racial equity outcomes.  Each City department is required to use the RET a minimum of four times per year, so the CIS will become a requirement for all City departments, across a range of content areas, as part of their Toolkits.
