Race and Politics in America

Ipsos is pleased to invite you to our upcoming DC Salon with a deep dive panel discussion about how race and ethnicity factor into U.S. elections and the political agenda. Attendees should expect to hear how much the specific concerns of various racial and ethnic constituencies will have driven the vote in the 2022 elections, and how they will shape policy in the next few years.

Panelists will include Camille Busette, senior fellow in governance studies at the Brookings Institution and director of its Race, Prosperity, and Inclusion Initiative, Russell Contreras, Justice and Race reporter at Axios / Axios Latino, Keon L. Gilbert, David M. Rubenstein fellow at The Brookings Institution and associate professor in the Department of Behavioral Science & Health Education at the College for Public Health and Social Justice at Saint Louis University, and Robert P. Jones, president and founder of Public Religion Research Institute and author of White Too Long: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity.

The session moderator will be April Jeffries, global president of ethnography and immersion at Ipsos UU and a leading member of Ipsos’ BRIDGE ("Being Racially Inclusive and Diverse Is Good for Everyone") Employee Resource Group.
