The importance and urgency of racial justice and equity work continue to ring loudly. We need both the private and public sectors committed to advancing racial justice issues.

This week JUST Capital released their new Corporate Racial Equity Tracker, which follows the commitments that America’s 100 largest employers made on diversity, equity and inclusion and keeps a running tally of the actions they have taken to follow up on those commitments over the past year. The effort reports out on 22 data points across six specific racial equity dimensions, and JUST Capital plans to continue updating the platform. Concrete action to follow through on these commitments is key to making an impact and advancing racial equity in America.

JUST Capital analyzed companies based on their Anti-Discrimination Policies; Pay Equity; Racial/Ethnic Diversity Data; Education and Training Programs; Response to Mass Incarceration; and Community Investments. This holistic analysis starts the hard work needed to show who is “walking the walk” on their statements, and we encourage you to check out the tracker today as well as when it's updated in the future.
