Mayors' Institute on City Design

2023 MICD Just City Mayoral Fellowship

The MICD Just City Mayoral Fellowship is a program of the Mayors’ Institute on City Design with the Just City Lab at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. This unique and highly interactive program brings together a small group of mayors to directly tackle racial injustices in each of their cities through planning and design interventions.

The 2023 Fellowship will help mayors develop and strengthen approaches to embedding justice and equity goals within government policy and practices, as well as help mayors design strategies for achieving more just and equitable outcomes within the communities of your city. This year’s cohort of mayors will be introduced to the concepts of social impact and justice-centered design, equity framework measurement tools, and innovative design practices that increase just and equitable outcomes. Building from past Fellowships, this year’s program will continue to explore ways to create lasting, transformational impacts from new federal funding streams such as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the American Rescue Plan Act.

The program will follow a hybrid in-person and virtual format between February and April of 2023.

Albany, NY Mayor Kathy Sheehan
Albuquerque, NM Mayor Tim Keller
Arlington, TX Mayor Jim Ross
Kansas City, MO Mayor Quinton Lucas
