Innovations in Racial Wealth Equity – 2 Years after the Racial Awakening. Success and lessons learned in progress towards increasing opportunities for communities of color.

Catherine Carlstedt July 13, 2022

In the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the COVID pandemic, corporations, industries, and banks committed capital to reduce the racial wealth gap. Many released announcements about their intentions for change – to empower Black and Brown families with generational wealth-building opportunities through intentional partnerships and business investments.  Almost two years later, what has happened as a result of these capital commitments? Will these intentions result in any real progress? What good has come from the racial awakening?  Panelists discuss and debate these commitments’ impact, successes, failures, and the trajectory needed to move the needle.
