While the answer may sometimes be elusive, CECP is proud to have been a trusted advisor to leading companies for over two decades, helping share best practices and insights to tackle society’s challenging problems. In the past few years, CECP has been advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) practices for, and with, our companies. We know the timing is right, as more and more companies are stepping up with bold, public-facing commitments to support employees, communities, and a range of stakeholders vis-à-vis the Business Roundtable Statement, Sustainable Development Goals, CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion, amongst the many other initiatives.

Already halfway through the year, the community has been learning and discussing the components of equity and how it can be incorporated into the work of corporate societal engagement, answering questions such as: what it is equity?; how does it impact the business world?; and how can funders consider the role of equity in their grantmaking and philanthropy?
