Using Data to Advance Equitable Change: An Intermediary’s Guide to Measuring for Equity

August 29, 2023

At a Glance

Intermediaries work to improve, vertically align, and systematize the components of career pathways. They are also crucial actors in centering racial equity within pathways work—as advocates, designers, and accountability partners. In these roles intermediaries analyze data within a given program as well as across secondary, postsecondary, and work systems to reveal trends and areas for greatest impact. In this brief, intermediaries participating in the Building Equitable Pathways community of practice share metrics they prioritize when determining if and how their pathways work successfully, resulting in more equitable outcomes.
