A CEO Blueprint for Racial Equity


PolicyLink, FSG, JUST Capital, and Living Cities invite corporations, racial equity experts, funders, investors, and other experts to support and collaborate with us in developing guidelines that can guide businesses in analyzing their impact on racial equity. This article presents an invitation and roadmap to help companies 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. The blueprint provides actions in three key domains: 1) inside the company, 2) within the communities where the companies are headquartered and conduct business, and 3) at the broader societal level.
