With its emerging work in the private sector, IARA envisions the establishment of national accountability standards for corporate racial equity efforts. This project seeks to support landscape actors in developing and using standards to measure the impact of these efforts against their stated goals, in response to perspectives of people of color impacted on the ground, and by using public disclosure of data on outcomes as means for public accountability reporting.
