  • Healthcare Institutions

    Healthcare Institutions

    COVID-19 and the 2020 wave of racial justice demonstrations in the United States moved many healthcare organizations to enact antiracist change goals. Yet, many of these commitments lacked effective strategies and accountability mechanisms. IARA conducted a one-year study of existing antiracist interventions in healthcare organizations and a review of authoritative evidence for institutional accountability.

  • Bias Education

    Bias Education

    The Bias Ed Project seeks to inspire parents, teachers, and school leaders to disrupt racism, sexism, xenophobia, and other pernicious and harmful biases in early childhood education and curricula.

  • Global Processes of Justice,
Truth–Telling and Healing

    Global Processes of Justice, Truth–Telling and Healing

    IARA is currently engaged in a three-year project, supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, to survey international examples of truth-telling and harm repair, including truth commissions and tribunals. The goal is to better understand what accountability looks like for these endeavors and what lessons we can learn going forward.

  • Private Sector

    Private Sector

    With its emerging work in the private sector, IARA envisions the establishment of standardized accountability practices and measures for corporate racial equity efforts.

  • Emerging Projects

    Put simply, IARA’s research focuses on one question: what is needed for long-term, antiracist institutional change? In order to understand institutional antiracism more broadly, IARA’s research explores specific sectors, as well as the threads that connect them.
