Economic Justice

The events of this past summer have made it clear: We need to move forward on social and economic justice. No matter who wins next month’s U.S. elections, plenty of work lies ahead.

Corporate voices matter. Financial commitments are important. Then the hard work begins. 

The next episode of 3BL Forum: Brands Taking Stands - Business Elects to Lead will focus on one of the most important issues that we as a society must honestly reckon with – the fight for racial and economic justice – and the need for business leadership at a time when it’s needed most … especially as government keeps falling short.

To that end, tomorrow, October 15 from Noon to 2:15 p.m. ET (9 a.m. PT, 5 p.m. BT), we’ll feature conversations with senior leaders from companies and organizations including BET Networks, Pizza Hut, Zeno Group, Newman’s Own, Chief Executives for Corporate Purpose (CECP), Fresh Energy, Porter Novelli, Northern Trust Asset Management, UnidosUS, The Cavu Group, Tides Foundation, Okta and Ben & Jerry’s. 

Conversations will touch upon what is happening with the U.S. business community, including what we’re seeing in corporate boardrooms, within the financial sector and how companies can lead on environmental justice.

This episode will be hosted by Cecily Joseph, an advisor for the Initiative for Equity & Social Justice at Presidio Graduate School and the current board chair of Net Impact. 


Registration is required to access all three episodes of the 3BL Virtual Forum. We are pleased to make this event available at no cost. 

The 2020 3BL Virtual Forum will take place over three Thursdays in October. Episode 1 took place on October 8. Episodes 2 and 3 are slated for October 15 and 22.

You won’t want to miss the final episode on October 22 as we’ll talk about the unprecedented activism of companies determined to ensure anyone who’s eligible to vote on November 3 can do so.
