Can Business Leaders Help Build an Equitable Society?

In the wake of Covid-19 and a long-overdue national reckoning on racial injustice, the call for all sectors to address structural racism has never been stronger. Corporate leaders across the nation are making bold commitments in response to increased demand from the public to lead on addressing structural racism. But commitments are not enough—companies need a roadmap and shared language for how to translate commitments into lasting change. This is our collective mission at PolicyLink, FSG and JUST Capital, where we are working to define robust corporate standards for racial equity building on our CEO Blueprint for Racial Equity and innovating from the ground up informed by the expertise, wisdom, and resilience of people of color and low-income communities. Listen in to learn more about the Blueprint, how C-Suite leaders across the nation are grappling with their increased civic leadership expectations and get a sneak peek into our groundbreaking project to develop racial equity business standards.
