Episode Five: Investing for Racial Equity — LIVE at SOCAP 365 in New York City

Housing, infrastructure, jobs, transportation, and local economic systems can unconsciously further these gaps–or be designed to interrupt and address inequities head-on.
How are funders moving capital to address racial equity across neighborhoods, cities, and nationally? Listen to episode five of the Money and Meaning podcast to hear a panel of leading practitioners, peers, and allies in the field provide examples of strategies that are working.
This Money and Meaning conversation, recorded live at a SOCAP 365 event at Civic Hall in New York City, explores ways that investors, city governments, philanthropists, and activists to work together to create genuine opportunities for communities of color to thrive.
