Joint Center Presents at Harvard Kennedy School’s Black Policy Conference

On April 14, Don Bell, Director of the Joint Center’s Black Talent Initiative, joined a panel at Harvard Kennedy School’s Black Policy Conference to discuss the lack of staff diversity on Capitol Hill, its implications on policy-making, and recommendations for increasing power among future generations.

 

Along with Don, panelists included Shaniqua McClendon, Andrea J. Ritchie, Samuel Sinyangwe, and Darrell Thompson. They explored the history between public policy and racism at the local, state, and federal levels. Panelists discussed the effects of such public policy on African Americans presently and outlined solutions for the future generation of policymakers.
