Meet Qaadirah Abdur-Rahim
Guest Topic: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in City Local Government
Qaadirah Abdur-Rahim has always been a trailblazer. Born and raised on Atlanta’s Southside, she
was the first person in her family to graduate college, earning degrees from the University of
California at Berkeley, and, later, Goizueta School of Business at Emory University.
Two decades after graduating college, she led the legislative process to establish the City
of Atlanta's first, Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. In her role as Chief Equity Officer, a
senior level-cabinet position, Qaadirah works with City leadership to develop social justice
policies and programs that confront equity, diversity, and inclusion issues, particularly around
the areas of workforce mobility, housing affordability, health, education, youth engagement, and
A former U.S. Air Force Reservist, Qaadirah spent 17 years working at the Future
Foundation, a nonprofit devoted to disrupting the cycle of poverty by helping students at
underinvested-in public schools thrive and pursue higher education. She departed as the
organization’s CEO, having increased the organization’s revenue by 432% and ensured a 100%
high school graduation rate among afterschool participants.
As a Black woman in a groundbreaking new leadership role, Qaadirah remains devoted
to her personal mission to dismantle systems of injustice that marginalize people and
communities with her lived experience. She believes each one of us has a role to play in
empowering voices that go unheard, leading with dignity, and uniting with each other to chart
the path to a better tomorrow.
