Investing for Racial Equity
With Cornerstone Capital's Katherine Pease & Randall Strickland
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed alarming weaknesses in the systems we depend on upon in everyday life in the U.S. – healthcare, education, and economic systems, to name just a few. It has cast a harsh light on the disproportionate impacts of these weaknesses on people of color, whose health and wealth have been decimated at far greater rates than those experienced by whites.
Moreover, there has been a dramatic growth in awareness of how the financial system has functionally been closed off to people of color, starting with the largest companies, most of which pay lip-service (at best) to racial equity and many of which do not address the issue at all.
Investors can contribute to the narrowing of economic disparities by investing in communities of color. Learn more about actions investors can take by joining us at this workshop.
This is a 1 hour workshop and you'll be engaged in interesting content the entire time. This event is FREE and open to anyone interested in learning more about angel investing.
