Weekly Business Presentation: "The Business Case for Racial Equity"
Featuring Report Author Ani Turner of Altarum,
with Cynthia Muller, Director of Mission Investment, W.K. Kellogg Foundation
This presentation will kick off the Fairbanks Chamber's Diversity & Inclusion series of 2021. We are pleased to have these speakers set the tone of the series and share The Business Case for Racial Equity.
Advancing racial equity exerts a powerful positive influence on the lives and futures of children. However, it’s not just a matter of social justice. Advancing racial equity is a strategy for fostering economic growth, for providing businesses a competitive advantage and for securing opportunity for all. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s 2018 Business Case for Racial Equity report lays out a comprehensive path for communities, policy makers and business leaders to advance racial equity.
Join us as we hear from Cynthia Muller, director of mission investment at the Kellogg Foundation, and report author Ani Turner to learn how and why business leaders who properly leverage the demographic shifts happening in the U.S.— recruit; retain; and invest in people of color—will secure a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
