In the past few weeks, it has become clear that America must do better. Americans are confronting our ugly realities that have helped fueled American prosperity, mostly at expense of communities of color, over the last 450 years. The senseless murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others have recently and rightfully ignited the country to action. We owe it to many young Americans, mothers and fathers, and even our elderly for putting their bodies and lives on the line to drive unprecedented awareness across our nation. The question I’ve been asking myself and others, is how do we as corporate leaders help actualize lasting systemic change and reform? The common conclusion is it’s going to require both cooperation in the public and private sector.
