PolicyLink: Racial Equity Is Good for Business

When PolicyLink launched our equitable economy initiative in 2011, we knew that we would have to directly address the role of the private sector. Today we are pleased to share a new report, The Competitive Advantage of Racial Equity, and accompanying op-ed in Fortune – both produced in partnership with FSG. It is our aspiration that these business strategies will complement the push, from outside and inside corporations, for more fair and equitable operations.

The report goes beyond the essential ingredient of workforce diversity, as a means for business to address past and continuing discrimination while improving their competitiveness, to challenge the corporate sector to affirmatively advance racial equity through its products, services, and public policy positions.

We invite your feedback on Twitter and Facebook and hope you will share the report and op-ed with your networks.
