Webinar – Reckoning, Repair, and Change: Authentically Advancing Racial Equity

Posted by Tamarack Institute on November 19, 2019

In this webinar, Liz Weaver, Veronica Borgonovi, and Hayling Price discuss how community changemakers can advance racial equity.

Increasingly the corporate sector in Canada and the US is focused on building purpose driven businesses.  These businesses recognize the competitive advantage of investing in people and planet as well as profit.  FSG has been exploring the ways in which companies are contributing to racial equity while also creating business value. In Reckoning, Repair and Change:  How Business Leaders Can More Effectively Advance Racial Equity and Competitive Advantage, FSG shares three action steps for how companies can authentically embrace their role in reducing racialized disparities: examining and reckoning with racialized history, building relationships and repairing past injustices, and co-developing strategies to create lasting change. While the paper targets the corporate sector, the action steps can similarly be implemented by philanthropists and non-profit sector leaders pursuing strategies in support of racial equity.
