Step 6: Conduct Race Equity Impact Assessment for all Policies and Decision-making

________________________________________________________

A Race Equity Impact Assessment (REIA) is used to systematically determine the extent various race or ethnic groups will be influenced by a decision, such as the decision to implement a new policy, program or practice. REIAs are a means to proactively diminish disparities that may be the unintentional effect of the newly implemented decision.  

Commonly Used Questions

1. Are all racial and ethnic groups that are affected by the policy, practice or decision at the table?

2. How will the proposed policy, practice or decision affect each group?

3. How will the proposed policy, practice or decision be perceived by each group?

4. Does the policy, practice or decision worsen or ignore existing disparities?

5. Based on the above responses, what revisions are needed in the policy, practice or decision under discussion?
