Why equity matters now The face of America is changing. Our countrys population is rapidly diversifying. By 2043, the United States will be a majority people-ofcolor nation. Why equity matters now Yet racial and income inequality is high and persistent. Over the past several decades, longstanding inequities in income, wealth, health, and opportunity have reached unprecedented levels, and communities of color have felt the greatest pains as the economy has shifted and stagnated. Why equity matters now Strong communities of color are necessary for the nations economic growth and prosperity. Equity is an economic imperative as well as a moral one. Research shows that equity and diversity are win-win propositions for nations, regions, communities, and firms.

Why equity matters now The way forward: an equity-driven growth model. To secure Americas prosperity, the U.S. must implement a new economic model based on equity, fairness, and opportunity. Why equity matters now Metropolitan regions are where this new growth model will be created. Why equity matters now Metropolitan regions are where this new growth model will be created. Regions are the key competitive unit in the global economy, and the level where strategies are being incubated that bring about robust job growth that is linked to low-income communities and communities of color.

Inequality threatens the regions future prosperity Income inequality is on the rise in the region most workers have seen their wages decline or stagnate over the past several decades after you account for inflation. The bottom half of the regions full-time workers, for example, have seen their wages fall 6 percent since 1979, while the wages of the top 10 percent of workers rose 13 percent. Inequality threatens the regions future prosperity As inequality has increased, the regions middle class has shrunk and poverty and working poverty (defined as working full-time for an income below 150 percent of the poverty level) have grown. More than one out of every four African Americans and Latinos in our region live below the poverty level. Implications of Equity Profile of KC region To secure a prosperous future, the regions leaders must take steps to build a more equitable and sustainable economy growing good jobs connecting youth and vulnerable workers to education and training

increasing access to economic opportunities located throughout the region. These are critical strategies to put all who live in the region on the path toward reaching their full potential. Where do we go from here? 1. Build Relationships 2. Share Facts 3. Develop Policy Together NEXT STEPS KC Regional Equity Network - Quarterly Meeting February 14th from 9-11 am Where: Mary Kelly Center, 2803 E. 51st Street Kansas City, MO
