Gloria Hobson Nordin Social Equity Luncheon

Sunday, March 11 | 11:45 a.m.

Brandi Blessett

Brandi Blessett is an associate professor and director of the Master of Public Administration program at the University of Cincinnati. Her research focuses on administrative responsibility, disenfranchisement and social equity. These interests offer insight regarding the effects of institutional and systemic injustice and their contemporary implications for urban communities and their residents.

Much of Blessett’s recent work acknowledges the disproportionate effects the criminal justice and legal systems, specifically, (as well as public institutions broadly) have on communities of color. Her research agenda advocates for ethical practices, professional standards and accountability measures to promote equity, justice and fairness to all factions of society in the United States.
