The role of business in the equity imperative

2020 spotlighted the harsh reality of systemic racism and injustice in the United States. What might it take to make real progress toward racial equity, and how can businesses help lead the way? In this episode, Deloitte Consulting leaders Andrew Blau, managing director and US Eminence & Insights leader, and Joanne Stephane, principal, US Human Capital leader for HR Strategy & Solutions and chief DEI officer, discuss why businesses need to play a leading role in the advancement of equity. They explore the emerging demographic and economic trends behind the business case for equity, as well as the some of the beliefs and behaviors that business should confront if they are to drive change. Andrew and Joanne share insights from the recent report they helped author, The equity imperative, which asserts equity is an outcome—not an activity. They discuss the bold actions businesses should take to help dismantle systemic racism within organizations, the marketplace, and society at large. To deliver measurable and sustainable outcomes, they explain, businesses need to make equity a core business issue, and all senior leaders, not just HR and DEI executives, should lead through an equity lens and be open to new perspectives.
