In the wake of the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Daniel Prude, and countless others, corporate leaders across the globe and particularly in the U.S. have released ambitious calls for racial justice. With companies’ outsized influence on the pace of social change it is essential for them to move from words to action. Using the CEO Blueprint for Racial Equity as a starting point, Michael McAfee, CEO of PolicyLink, led an engaging and thought-provoking conversation with Martin Whittaker, CEO of JUST Capital, and Lakshmi Iyer, a Director at FSG about the ways in which leaders can take action to advance racial equity at the company level, the community level, and the societal level.
