AARO believes that poverty and a lack of equality in our community can—and already are—holding Central Texas back from achieving true excellence. The Social Equity Committee is attempting to make a difference. Through research, the committee identified 17 high demand, high wage occupations with 2720 annual openings and require up to a 2 year degree or certificate. AARO shared these findings with ACC which is now implementing its new career accelerator initiative. AARO is also in the vanguard of finding solutions to our region’s shortage of affordable housing and is now considering the challenge of institutional racism and systemic inequities.
