Businesses have long made the impossible possible. Alongside civil society and government, businesses also have a leading role to play in building a society where everyone can participate fairly in our economy and democracy and access what they need to thrive.

This webinar explores the groundbreaking new performance standards that will support businesses in advancing equity and inclusion, combating discrimination, and embodying the best of socially responsible business.

Developed by the Corporate Racial Equity Alliance — an initiative by PolicyLink, FSG, and JUST Capital — the standards are informed by extensive research and the voices of hundreds of people from all walks of life. They will give US-based businesses a common language and clear roadmap to navigate current realities and make lasting positive change.

Along with showcasing the new standards, we shared how they are a pathway to meaningful action for businesses and how you can lend your experience and expertise through our upcoming public comment period. 

Now is not the time to retreat. Now is the time to make lasting progress.

We invite everyone to join our effort, including workers, investors, business leaders, business advisors, young people, civil society, community leaders, consumers, under- and unemployed people, standards setters, academics, public leaders, and you!
