Corporate Roundtable & DEI Funders Meeting

Racial equity is an imperative for social justice AND also a strategy for economic growth. Beyond an increase in economic output, advancing racial equity can translate into meaningful increases in consumer spending and federal, state, and local tax revenues, and decreases in social services spending and health-related costs.

Join us as we hear from Ani Turner author of the W. K Kellogg Foundation’s Business Case for Racial Equity report. Ani will share key takeaways from her research & high-leverage evidence-based strategies GCG Members can start investing in.
