DESIGNS ON THE FUTURE

Past Program

OVERVIEW

The triple pandemic of racism, recession and COVID-19 hurts poor and minority communities most. Whole societies pay the cost. If racial disparities in health, education, incarceration, and employment were eliminated, the US economy could gain an extra $8 trillion by 2050, according to The Business Case for Racial Equity, a 2018 W.K. Kellogg Foundation report by Altarum. 

Who and where are the leaders ready to tackle structural injustice over the next decade? How can corporations and foundations drive capital to communities of color? How might changes in the US impact – and be impacted by – other countries that also struggle to address deep-rooted inequities? If “collective fear stimulates herd instinct”, can “collective boldness” bring shared prosperity and racial healing?

Join us for the second Designs on the Future webinar: a straight-talking conversation on how business and philanthropic leaders can leverage their resources to support racial equity and next-generation leadership.
