Closing the Gap: Equalizing Access to Economic Opportunity

As we wade further and further into 2021, it’s tempting to imagine we can leave the challenges of 2020 behind us, but deep down we know we can’t. At a time when stakeholders increasingly expect the private sector to positively contribute to society, what is the role of business in rebuilding from the coronavirus pandemic in an equitable way? How can companies catalyze real progress on closing equity gaps that have been with us for centuries? And how can they do their part to ensure that underserved communities aren’t left behind in the COVID-19 recovery?

In this series sponsored by Capital One, we’ll take a look at how the pandemic has affected vulnerable populations — and what business leaders can do not only to support at-risk individuals now, but also to help communities build resilience into the future. Click here to read our previous series with Capital One, which covers how companies can drive positive impact in the communities where they do business. (Image: iStock Photo)
