This report provided recommendations focusing on six key themes: Employment, Finance, Education, Health, Housing and the Justice System. Although racial bias impacts Americans of color across the socioeconomic divide, we focused our efforts — as large employers — on addressing the economic opportunity gap, including disparities in access to good jobs, financial resources and quality education and healthcare.
While progress has been made in many areas to curb racial inequities, in many ways gaps in economic opportunity have grown. White family wealth in 2019 was eight times that of a typical Black family and five times that of a typical Hispanic family. These longstanding systemic inequities can have a compounding negative effect across generations, and the trends will not reverse unless all of us — government, business and civil society — take steps to ensure that every American can participate fully in the economy.
