A Progress Report

Together and individually, New 42 Board and Staff are taking a close look at our nonprofit’s culture and processes to identify and address systemic racism, anti-Blackness and prejudice. As New 42 implements new practices and working groups toward a more radically inclusive professional community, we publish our progress as a form of accountability. The work is not, and never will be, finished. Here, a look at where New 42 is and where we’re going.
