Assistant Professor at PSU, Ann Curry-Stevens at MFS Winter All-Staff Meeting

Assistant Professor at PSU, Ann Curry-Stevens (pictured with MFS CEO Judy Strand) presented at the MFS Winter All Staff Meeting as part of our commitment to equality and cultural responsiveness. Ann summarized her research findings that document disparities experienced by communities of color in the Portland Metro Region. Ann’s presentation was timely because MFS is in the process of using its new information management system to more precisely measure impact among communities of color.
