TOWNHALL RECAPS

Join BLACK ENTERPRISE for the most powerful conversation on Black financial empowerment today

Our latest installment of the groundbreaking Black Enterprise Town Hall series on Sept. 9 focuses on opportunities to close the racial wealth gap impacting Black America: “Homeownership & Wealth Building: Creating Pathways to Lasting Black Prosperity.
In the wake of more than 70 Black business leaders publicly challenging corporate America to take a stand against the campaign to pass voter suppression legislation across the country, we bring together top executives and voting rights activists who are engaged in the latest battle to protect our franchise. The session will focus on what corporations must do to demonstrate clear and continuing allyship with those fighting for the voting rights of Black people, consistent with their public pledges in support of economic equity and racial justice. It will also address what we can do to hold those corporations accountable for their actions—or lack thereof—on this fundamental issue of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

In response to the brutal killing of George Floyd and the global unrest in its aftermath, corporate America has been challenged to confront systemic racism in the workplace as well as society as a whole. This session will focus on measures for Black advancement based on the series of corporate pledges to deal with past racial inequities. The initiatives include providing more opportunities for Black professionals in the workplace; increasing capital and procurement opportunities for Black-owned businesses; and ensuring corporate accountability to this renewed focus on diversity, equity and inclusion.
