While some saw their stocks, real estate holdings and pay as executives skyrocket in the last decade, more than 33 million people are living in poverty in the U.S. Economic inequality is rising at an alarming rate, and companies are under increasing pressure to better align with their stakeholders, fueling the push for a more inclusive economy. In this session, JUST Capital’s Alison Omens will moderate a conversation about inclusive capitalism, what’s driving it, and the innovative tools being built to help businesses and investors advance economic equality and close the racial wealth gap. Panelists include pioneering impact investor Jean Case, Case Impact Network CEO; Next Street Managing Partner Charisse Conanan Johnson; and Otis Rolley, Sr. Vice President of the Rockefeller Foundation.
