Can Corporate America Help Build a Racially Just Society? Preview of A CEO Blueprint for Racial Equity 2.0
To help companies move past commitments, PolicyLink, FSG, and JUST Capital developed A CEO Blueprint for Racial Equity which offered CEOs a framework for supporting racial equity in their business, community, and the nation. Over the last year, the three organizations have collaborated with corporations, racial equity experts, funders, investors, and other experts to expand upon these guidelines. The forthcoming Blueprint 2.0 offers a deeper exploration of how companies can understand and address the intended and unintended consequences of all their products, policies, and practices on people of color, and by extension, our economy and democracy. More importantly, this updated framework and the dialogue it creates will be the basis for the creation of standards for corporate racial equity.
