MITRE’s Equity Assessment Framework enables federal agencies to examine programs and policies from the perspective of underserved communities as required by Executive Order 13985. This framework is a systems-based, data-driven approach to equity assessment that incorporates human-centered research, design, and assessment practices. It provides detailed guidance for repeatable and inclusive equity assessments and helps agencies establish ongoing equity-centric planning and implementation processes.

The Equity Indicator Library increases understanding of equity in communities. Indicators are measures that identify something without directly observing it. The goal of the Indicator Library is to understand disparities in communities by assessing current and historical trends. Indicators can be used to motivate further research to define relationships between indicators and root causes. They can also be used to create measurable goals and make informed policy decisions to increase equitable outcomes.
All aspects of our society can improve the understanding of bias and how to enhance equity. MITRE brings our unique vantage point working across the whole of government to offer an approach and methods for federal agencies to examine programs and policies from the perspective of underserved communities as required by Executive Order 13985.
