Anti-Racism Task Force

Charge:

The Anti-Racism Task Force will:

  • Review the association’s infrastructure, policies, and procedures to determine how structural and systemic barriers conflict with the association’s position on justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. The task force will develop infrastructure and policy recommendations to the board of directors and other senior leaders to help drive positive cultural change within the association that aligns to the association’s stated position on justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.
  • Assess the communications and activities of groups within the association that provide services, benefits, or support to key stakeholders, other professional associations, and the public for the presence and impact of racial and ethnic bias. Examples of communications and activities include, but are not limited to, educational guidance and support, professional development programs, development activities, and public relations campaigns. The task force will develop recommendations to the board of directors and other senior leaders to ensure communications and activities of the association’s groups align with the association’s position on justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.
  • Propose mechanisms to the Board through which the association will inform the public on the responsible use of statistics and data science in systems that can unintentionally contribute to widespread racial and ethnic bias in society, such as facial recognition algorithms, predictive policing, and machine learning optimization algorithms, etc. Also propose how statistics should be used to support anti-racist systems.
