THE EVIDENCE
FROMWISCONSIN
 
WiSCOnSin anD EqualOppOrtunity
Equal opportunity is deeply rooted in the Americanideals of fairness, justice, and equality. Programs tomeet the goals of equal opportunity seek to realizethese basic values. Moreover, equal opportunity notonly helps individuals but also helps communities inneed and benets our larger society.
In Wisconsin, people of color and women continueto face discrimination and disparity. In an effortto respond to these imbalances, Wisconsin utilizestraditional afrmative action and other equalopportunity measures. However, equal opportunityopponents have introduced measures to limitsimilar equal opportunity efforts in a number of other states. This report assesses the current stateof disparity and discrimination in Wisconsin,including the areas most directly affected by publicequal opportunity programs: public education,employment, and contracting.
