More Than a Moment: Business Can and Must Advance the Racial Justice Movement
Following the murder of George Floyd last summer, countless companies and their senior leadership publicly condemned discrimination in any form, announced various financial commitments aimed at accelerating change and, in some cases, unveiled long-term initiatives to fundamentally alter their business practices to meet the needs of all people.
Fast-forward to today: A new presidential administration committed to addressing systemic racism and economic inequality has taken office in the U.S. But what does this mean for businesses that pledged to help stamp out systemic racism just a few months ago? How can they make good on their commitments now and maintain momentum into the future?
Join us on March 4 at 1 p.m. EST as we explore the answers to these consequential questions during “Now Is Not the Time to Get Complacent: How Business Can Push the Racial Justice Movement Further,” the first installment of 3BL Forum: Brands Taking Stands – LIVE!
Presented by 3BL Media, 3BL Forum: Brands Taking Stands – LIVE! will convene corporate leaders from top brands for a series of sessions focused on "the why" and "the how" behind business leadership on today's most pressing issues.
To help us examine how businesses can partner with stakeholders to propel the movement for racial and economic justice further, we’re excited to welcome these exceptional thought leaders to the virtual main stage:
