What to know about Camille Busette

The Power of Policy Reform to Address Racial Justice in Erie

 How can communities use policy reform to address systemic issues that have driven racial inequities over decades? Dr. Camille Busette, a leading expert on policy reform at the local and national levels, will address those issues and more in her Global Summit talk. With a focus on Erie, Pennsylvania, Busette will examine data and trends in Erie, as well as comparable metros, with a look at what’s been done and is being done. She is currently working as a project consultant with Erie-based advocacy groups on a new policy strategy as part of the Better Together Council’s Erie Racial Justice Policy initiative.
 As a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, Busette heads the think tank’s Race, Prosperity, and Inclusion initiative, which launched How We Rise, a project that focuses on policy solutions to upend structural racism and create a more equitable society for all. She has affiliations with Brookings Governance Studies, Economic Studies, and Metropolitan Policy Program.
 After receiving her academic training at the University of California at Berkley and the University of Chicago, Dr. Busette embarked on a career at the World Bank, where she confronted issues of extreme poverty, lack of access to health, education, sanitation, and the labor market. Busette is no stranger to Erie or the Jefferson Global Summit. She addressed “Thinking Differently about Race and Belonging” at Global Summit XI in 2019, and joined her Brookings’ colleague Dr. Rashawn Ray at Global Summit XII in May 2021 for a program titled “Addressing Policy Reform and Racial Equity.”
