To accelerate the progress and impact of business efforts to address racial equity, Association of Corporate Citizenship Professionals (ACCP), Chief Executives for Corporate Purpose (CECP), The Council on Foundations, and Points of Light collaborated to host a two-day conference in December of 2020 titled, “Racial Equity: Moving Companies from Promise to Action”.  Gathering the foremost leaders in the field, the conference provided case studies on peer companies that are pushing the needle forward, conversations with voices from the movement, and actions companies can take.

Drawing from the conference as a moment to listen, learn, take action, and provide accountability, the summary seeks to keep up the momentum of progress by highlighting key takeaways from the event, as well as 10 actions companies can take to advance their progress on racial equity.

ACCP, CECP, Council on Foundations, and Points of Light thank Bank of America, KMPG, Charles Schwab, and USAA for their support of “Racial Equity: Moving Companies from Promise to Action.”
