Case Study: Floods and Socioeconomic Inequality

We take a look at how extreme flood events disproportionately affect socioeconomically disadvantaged communities and what steps can be taken to mitigate these disparities.

LEAD Event Features CSS AD Al Young

Al Young participated in the LEAD: Empowering and Elevating Marginalized Voices event as part of the Leading Equity and Diversity series hosted by the Rackham Graduate School.

The Center for Social Solutions (CSS) fosters research and collaborations that diagnose and solve critical social problems. We believe these solutions rely on diverse perspectives that account for the multi-faceted root causes of these issues. Our four founding initiatives—diversity, slavery, water access, and the future of work—approach different aspects of the equality that we believe is necessary to advance as a prosperous democratic society.
