Hennepin County Hires Alex Tittle to Reduce Racial and Other Disparities

Hennepin County, which is home to Eden Prairie, has hired a new disparity reduction director who will help the county address gaps between white people and people of color.

According to the Star Tribune, Hennepin County has hired Alex Tittle to serve as its first disparity reduction director to help address and lead disparity reduction efforts within seven areas: education, employment, income, justice, transportation, health and housing.

The Hennepin County Board has been addressing disparity issues for some time, but national studies still give the county low rankings in areas of disparities, the report said.
