On June 13, JUST Capital convened corporate and nonprofit leaders for a virtual event – Moving the Needle: Tracking Corporate Progress on Racial Equity.
In the wake of our country’s reckoning with racial injustice two years ago, corporations made public commitments to combat systemic racism in their workplaces, communities, and society-at-large. This convening was created with the goal of unpacking how our nation’s largest companies are measuring up today and evolving those racial equity commitments into real, measurable action.
JUST Capital’s Director of Corporate Equity Ashley Marchand Orme kicked off by sharing insights from our 2022 Corporate Racial Equity Tracker and talking about the imperative of corporate equity and opportunity with Leslie Boissiere, Vice President of External Affairs at The Annie E. Casey Foundation.
JUST Capital’s Managing Director and Head of Investor Strategy, Cambria Allen-Ratzlaff, led a conversation about the investor case for corporate equity with Holly Fetter, VP Asset Stewardship, State Street Global Advisors; Yumi Narita, Executive Director of Corporate Governance, Office of the NYC Comptroller; and Victor Howell, Managing Regional Director, Natixis Investment Managers.
And finally, JUST Capital’s Director of Programs and Partnerships, Tolu Lawrence, spoke with Edelman U.S. CEO Lisa Osborne Ross, who laid out clear, actionable insights for leaders ready to drive and measure real change within their organizations.
