Racial equity is a matter for Boardrooms, Executives and Industry Leaders. With the recent resurgence of racial uprisings, organizations are looking to address racial equity in their places of business, with their employees and with those they serve. Your organization may have posted Black Lives Matter and Solidarity Statements – but you are looking to do more. As leaders in your industry, you recognize that statements are nice – they offer communication on your organization’s ‘values’ – but they are meaningless without action. You know what matters is output – data, numbers, quantifiable measures. In other words, how do you move from value statements to value actions?  

You reStructure! Start 2021 by pledging to build a racial equity structure – an organization that is committed to racial equity accountability and action.  reStructure is an opportunity for organizational as well as individual growth. As People in Positions of Power you always do what’s best for your stakeholders and you know this is measured by your decisions and ongoing actions. To the question of “What more can we do as an organization to stand for racial equity?” The answer is OC Together: reStructure
