Bold Corporate Leadership
June 18, 2021
In the wake of the death of George Floyd in 2020, the country was undergoing its latest racial reckoning. Corporations posted pledges affirming that Black Lives Matter and made statements about racial justice. Some went further, adding staff focused on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, or taking a broader look at ways to advance racial equity from within.
Since then, the public has been calling for corporations, companies, and businesses to step forward meaningfully in the fight for racial equity and justice.
During this armchair discussion on bold corporate leadership, EPU Founder and President Mitch Landrieu spoke with the CEO of Bank of America Brian Moynihan and the President of NASCAR Steve Phelps about the actions that businesses have taken on issues of race and equity.
