Everyone deserves the opportunity to attain their full health potential, regardless of their social or economic status, race, ethnicity, or other factors. By understanding the equity gaps that exist across the current healthcare system and the underlying factors that can contribute to them, brands can help address and dismantle the barriers to health equity.
To achieve true social justice, we need to first address the widening wealth gap in the U.S. Through dedicated programs and investment that focus on minority financial education and facilitate equal access to financial products and services, leading brands across the financial sector can help bridge the economic divides that exist and ensure we ALL have the opportunity to reach the American dream.
It all begins with education. At the root of much of the social inequity and injustice we see in the U.S. today is the lack of equal access to quality educational opportunities -- in primary, secondary, and post-secondary education. It's time both the public and private sectors work together to create meaningful change in the current state of education, allowing ALL to achieve their highest potential.
Brand goals +
Brands are continually looking for new markets and opportunities for growth. And as minorities become majorities in key markets across the country, communities of color can be a great place to invest and engage.
Yet despite recent gains in upward mobility, communities of color are still lagging – continuously facing social injustices and unequal outcomes keeping them from true parity with their white counterparts.
We believe leading brands can sustainably harvest these communities for market growth by simultaneously investing in them – where their needs are greatest. By helping communities reach self-actualization and achieve their full potential, equity can be achieved by all. Community equity = brand equity.
