Notes Albuquerque Taking the long-view on a broad range of issues, from high school completion levels and juvenile incarceration to employment practices and private-sector job growth. Whether the city is focusing on health, education, workforce development or racial equity, the Mayor's Office, along with the Albuquerque public and private sectors, is committed to growing the city through investments in innovation, entrepreneurship and infrastructure. Like other cities in New Mexico and across the U.S., Albuquerque faces challenges related to educational attainment and racial equity. In 2014, Albuquerque’s graduation rate fell 6.2% to 62.5%, but that’s not the whole story. The graduation rate for whites in New Mexico was 74.7%, while it dropped to 66.9% for Hispanic students and 62% for blacks. On the workforce side, there were more than 950 charges of workforce discrimination in 2014, with racial discrimination representing 21.2% of those charges.

Albuquerque has taken a multi-faceted approach to tackling these issues. Cross-sector teams across the city participate in a number of initiatives with Living Cities. Through these and other systems-level efforts, the city aims to eliminate municipal policies and practices that perpetuate racial inequities; adopt and embrace strategies that advance racial equity at the structural level; and help local communities take advantage of institutional changes.
